Pianist and composer Roberto Piana was born in Sassari, on the Italian island of Sardinia, in 1971. He perfected his studies with numerous famous pianists, but owes his training to Isabella Lo Porto, with whom he graduated in piano studies with top marks, at the Music Conservatory of Sassari.

As a pianist, he has performed with great success in numerous theatres such as Rond Point on the Champs-Elysées in Paris, Teatro Regio in Turin, Teatro alla Scala in Milan, University of Stuttgart, Germany, and Saint Petersburg, Russia, as well as in cities such as Barcelona, Zurig, Liège, Brussels, Charleroi, Mons, Lausanne, and Düsseldorf.

While maintaining a busy performance schedule, Roberto is also committed to the study of lesser known composers such as Ansorge, Gutmann, Ornstein, Rebello, Ricordi, Tellefsen, Wolff, and others. Since 1994, he has authored essays, books, and CDs (Stradivarius, Da Vinci Classics, Amadeus, Tactus, Documenta Edizioni, Suonare News).

As a composer, Roberto Piana is the author of various works for piano, voice, symphonic and chamber music, published by Bèrben, and Editoriale Documenta. Many of his compositions can be heard on CDs released by labels such as Steinway & Sons, Centaur Records, Music & Arts, and TwoPianists.

He is a piano professor at the Sassari Conservatory of Music. He holds piano master classes in Italy and Russia (St. Petersburg).
