In the same year, he won the first prize at the XXXVII edition of Premio Venezia. At the end of 2021, he was invited to play Beethoven Concerto no. 2, under the direction of Donato Renzetti, launching with three concerts the cultural project “In Beethoven’s Olympus” that is taking place from 2021 to 2026.
