William Matteuzzi, born in Bologna, was a pupil of Rodolfo Celletti, with whom he developed those virtuosic technical qualities that would lead him to be one of the pillars of the worldwide male “belcanto renaissance”. After his official debut in Milan in 1979, his success at the “Enrico Caruso” competition in 1980 and his study at the Accademia del Teatro alla Scala in Milan, he dedicated himself to a career that saw him engaged in over one hundred roles from Monteverdi to Strauss, many of which belonged to Rossini’s production. He has performed in America (New York, San Francisco, Buenos Aires), Asia (Macao, Tokyo, Nagasaki) and Europe, interpreting from 1981 to 1994 ten different roles in the Teatro alla Scala alone. His discography is quite extensive and includes the recording of operas, oratorios, early music and chamber music for major record labels such as Decca and Deutsche Grammophon. In recent years he has dedicated himself to teaching, giving many master classes in Germany, Japan and Italy, where he collaborates with some of the most prestigious Academies and Musical Universities. He teaches Voice at the Chigiana Summer Academy since 2016.
