I wanted to grow and establish myself and my company in the world of discography. I decided, therefore, to attend my first music industry showcase festival in France, which, much like an industry fair, is a key place to build your brand and grow your network. I was there alone, at 19 years of age, speaking with incredible artists like Wyclef Jean, Mark Hoppus, and Daddy Yankee.
I was a little lost, and looking to make connections, so I decided to attend a speech about the importance of management and law in the new deals brought forward by the digital market for artists. I waited until the end of the speech to try to talk and exchange cards with one of the speakers, who promptly said, "Wait, I have an Italian colleague you should meet!" Later that day, I met Fabrizio Catalano for a long chat.
