Born in Prato to a family of musicians, Carlomoreno Volpini began studying at a very young age with his father, Moreno Volpini, subsequently graduating from the "L. Cherubini" Conservatory in Florence in violin, under the guidance of L. Gamberini in 1993. At the same time as the of his violin activity as an orchestra teacher he studied composition with one of the greatest exponents of the musical avant-garde, Salvatore Sciarrino, and orchestral conducting with Piero Bellugi, with whom he trained technically and musically on the symphonic repertoire (In 2004 he was assistant to the conducting courses held in Florence by Bellugi himself). He graduated brilliantly in '99, again at the "L. Cherubini" Conservatory in Florence, in experimental composition with Mauro Cardi and in orchestral conducting with Alessandro Pinzauti. In 2000 he perfected his operatic repertoire with D. Renzetti, at the Accademia Musicale Pescarese and in 2002 at the Accademia Chigiana in Siena with Y. Ahronovitch, with whom he will tackle the romantic and late-romantic repertoire. To confirm his eclectic propensity for different musical languages, he followed, in 2004, again at the "Chigiana" in Siena, the film music course held by maestro Luis Bacalov.
