Rossetti plays on the street, has been running for over twenty years like a spinning top: he has played in more than a thousand clubs, streets and squares, consuming miles and engines ... and he still doesn't have enough. He met a million faces and met a lot of stories: someone told it in the songs he writes.

Rossetti is a Tuscan singer-songwriter who lives between Florence, Siena and Arezzo, together with his partner Roberta and their child Edoardo, four cats and a bear cub named Gastone. He has a van with a bed inside, with which he moves to play.

In live shows he sings on two microphones, plays the guitar and beats a bass drum with the heel of his right foot.

His latest album, released in June 2019, is called "Love is a bicycle with square wheels" .

The sound seems to emerge from the past: trio of strings, grand piano, drums with brushes, double bass and acoustic guitar, are the instruments that dress the melodies of the record. The texts of Rossetti, come out instinctive, with direct words that avoid frills and try to cheat as little as possible: foggy solitudes, insecurities, deranged loves, petty friendships, alienating works and dreams that struggle to be real. In his songs there is inside what each of us breathes. Since he was born he listened, played and sang a lot of music, which influenced his way of thinking: Vasco Rossi, Ivano Fossati, Francesco De Gregori, Pino Daniele, Samuele Bersani, Bobo Rondelli, U2, Bruce Springsteen, the Radiohead and above all Damien Rice, the Irish singer who abandoned music in 2000 to come to be a farmer in Tuscany, moving away from the world of music that had sickened him.

"Love is a bicycle with square wheels" was recorded in the Cantine recording studio of Badia Recording Studio by Giovanni Sala. The album marks the association with the new record label Formica Dischi.4


in 2016 he won the Acoustic Guitar Village,
