About me

“You, poet, at the obscure universe
Always stare, for us you grasp it and frame
In clear words and pleasing verse…”
(Giovanni Pascoli)


The cellist who approaches the web looking for information often has the sensation of being in the “obscure universe” mentioned by Giovanni Pascoli in one of his most famous poems.

The information that is in front of him is so many, so many … too many, and often so confusing and contradictory that it makes him completely lost in the “obscure universe”.

From this consideration comes www.mycello.it, a website dedicated to the cello that transforms the “obscure universe” of the web into “clear word”, a site that allows cellists to quickly and effectively reach the information they are looking for.

Information about competitions, festivals, auditions, sheet music and repertoire, and even interviews and information on history and current events.

MyCello is based in Bergamo, a small, wonderful Italian city, the birthplace of great musicians such as Alfredo Piatti, Gaetano Donizetti, and Pietro Antonio Locatelli.

A site to visit, a site to return to, a site to use every day.
