Andrea Sanguineti studied piano and composition at the Conservatory in Genoa, followed by studies of conducting at the Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst in Vienna and at the “Giuseppe Verdi” Conservatory in Milan with Vittorio Parisi. At the latter he graduated as one of the youngest students ever at the age of 23 years. He continued his studies with Umberto Finazzi, specialising in dramatic repertoire and was consequently engaged as répétiteur at the Opéra National du Rhin in Strasbourg.
