From his early start in music to his captivating performances on stage, Vincenzo’s dedication to his craft exemplifies the spirit of creativity and perseverance that defines our community.

A Passion for Performing: The Early Years

Vincenzo’s journey began at the tender age of six, when he first discovered his love for singing. His talent soon led him to explore other facets of the performing arts. Under the guidance of Giuseppe Spicuglia at the ‘Sacro Cuore Theatre Laboratory’ in Noto, Italy, Vincenzo honed his skills in acting and dancing. His performances in productions like “The Beauty and the Beast” and “Mary Poppins” marked the beginning of a promising career.

Professional Growth: The Golden Star Academy

Determined to pursue his passion professionally, Vincenzo enrolled at the ‘Golden Star Academy’ in Rome. Graduating in 2017, he left equipped with the skills and experience needed to shine in the competitive world of theatre. His hard work paid off when, in December 2016, he joined the ensemble of the musical “Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage” at the ‘Gran Teatro’ in Rome, directed by Federico Bellone.

Taking a Leap & Expanding Horizons: Moving to London

In 2017, Vincenzo took a bold step by moving to London to expand his horizons. It was there, while working as a waiter, that serendipity struck. He found his first agent, who introduced him to the world of entertainment in London. This chance encounter marked the beginning of his international career.

In 2022, Vincenzo’s career took another leap forward when he signed a representation contract with ‘YOU Management UK’. This partnership opened doors to new and exciting opportunities, solidifying his place in the entertainment industry. You can check hi out on their website here:
