They have organized the first workshops about drum-tuning and sound in Pescara at “The Music Store” and then in Bolzano and Vienna (Austria) at Beatboxx. Rino’s most recent works include the preface for Fabrizio Granata’s book “La Costruzione Del Suono” (transl. “Building Your Sound”) and since 2014 he has collaborated with the Italian drum magazine “Drum Club” who already published some of his articles.
