After 2 years, from the merge of HSPL and PBC and the entry of many new artists, founded CROMEDROP Family, a collective that promotes electronic music themed events, surrounded by the most different forms of art. In 2009 creates Provocazioni Festival, an independent art and electronic music festival, attended by more than 5000 people each edition, confirming itself as one of the best independent events in the capital.
Cromedrop Records is the last step of the collective, an independent label whose first release on vinyl wants to be, as well as a point of arrival, a starting point for setting new targets, like promoting italian and international artists, and fixing what since many years was recognised in parties as “Cromedrop style”.
In 2013 founds “Container”, a club oriented project in wich he’s artistic director and technical responsible. After the first season the monthly party, in wich he’s resident, placed it self as a landmark in the roman techno scene
