The “Art-ù” Ensemble was formed in 1997, with the name of “Ensemble Mauro Giuliani”. He immediately directed his interest towards eighteenth-nineteenth-century chamber production for strings and guitar.
The Ensemble ranges from the formation of the duo to the quintet, however favoring the form of the trio with which it mainly presents itself in concert.
In this sense, he carries out extensive research work within this specific chamber repertoire: from already well-known compositions by M. Giuliani, N. Paganini, F. Da Fossa to works by lesser-known authors such as Noferi, Porro, Ximenes.
