Born in Angera (VA), after undertaking other paths, Diego Cavazzin decides to follow his artistry applying himself intensively to the study of the singing and of the repertoire.
He won the first prize at the Orvieto’s “Spazio Musica” and Bad Schwalbach’s “Classical Opera” Competitions and starred in 2012, in his forties, on the lyrical scenes such as Pinkerton on a Madama Butterfly tour of Northern Europe.
