Background and Experiences

Hello, my name is Alessandro Ciuffetti, and I was born in Rimini on January 23, 1979.
Attracted by the vibrant nightlife of the local area, my encounter with music was natural and inevitable. In the early 2000s, with my band (Brevia, where I was the drummer), I performed all over Italy and received great acclaim.
During the same period, together with the other band members, I created a recording studio called The House of Glam, which became a point of reference for many artists in the area.
At that point, the desire to learn more about the world of professional audio led me to attend a sound engineering course at Naïve Recording Studio, owned by Francesco De Benedittis, one of the most important studios in Central Italy.


● After a decade of experiences and collaborations in the field of recording and production (working with names like Max Gazzè, Valentino Rossi, and Raphael Gualazzi, to name a few), today I work as a Mastering Engineer at Naïve Mastering.
During this time I have invested additional time to learn and make practice that would refine and enhance my audio mastering skills, including:
● APM (Scuola di Alto Perfezionamento Musicale) in Saluzzo (Asti), where I obtained a master's degree in Audio Mastering.
● Percorsi Audio in Viterbo, where I acquired a professional audio certification that allowed me to deepen my knowledge of "Pro Tools," the software I use for work and teach.
I have also continued to perform live before fully dedicating myself to the profession of Mastering Engineer, collaborating with:
● Filippo Graziani (performing throughout Italy and on two mini-tours in the United States).
● Gli Ex (important participations in various festivals, including the Tenco Prize in San Remo).
● Paul Gordon Manners (an important international producer and singer).
Among my key clients, I have had the pleasure to work with:
Gigi D’Agostino● Benny Benassi ● Bob Sinclar● Molella ● Gianluca Vacchi● LA Vision ● Samuele Sartini ● Teo Mandrelli 
Thanks to some of these collaborations, I have achieved significant international results.
For example, "Hollywood" by Gigi D'Agostino & LA Vision has surpassed 120 million streams on Spotify and has received positive recognition throughout Europe, including:
- Platinum certification in Italy, Austria, and Slovakia,- Double Platinum certification in the Czech Republic and Poland,- Gold certification in Switzerland and Germany.

Interests & Passions

I love technology.
I am drawn to technological progress, especially when it aims to improve life while respecting nature.

I love animals.
My partner and I currently live with two beautiful cats.

I adore nature and strive to respect it in every way. I am vegetarian.

I enjoy reading.
While I prefer books, articles, or blogs related to art, astronomy, philosophy, or the experiences of enlightened individuals, I am always seeking new information on any topic I find interesting.

I love watching movies of all genres, especially those related to the world of science fiction, provided they have a scientific basis supporting the plot.

I am a dreamer.
But I prefer to live by trying to fulfill my dreams and those of others.

I am determined and persistent.
If I set a goal, I give my heart and soul to achieve it, while always respecting my principles and the people I encounter.

I am someone who values respect and honor greatly.
A promise given is sacred to me.

I consider myself an altruist.
Generally, I prefer giving rather than receiving, unless it is a precious piece of advice generously offered by a friend.

I love running.
Running is a sport I practice very often, allowing me to be alone with myself. Being able to do it surrounded by nature is a fantastic way to recharge my spirit and feel at peace with the world.

I enjoy traveling.
A journey is a mix of experiences and emotions, just like a song. During a trip, I always try to do all the things I love in life, as if I were mixing the ingredients of a song to make it sound the best.

I am open to surprises, changes, and novelties.
For me, change always represents an opportunity.

I love life.
I am moved by the small (and magnificent) things of everyday life.
