His artistic career started as bass-player and drummer in various Blues, Funk and Jazz ensembles. He studied jazz harmony and rhythm with international masters, attending some masterclasses. Subsequently he began a self-taught journey into Overtone singing and Throat singing, going deep into the traditional techniques with masters from Europe, Tuva and Mongolia.
"I knew it was my thing, that's why I studied 2 hours everyday for 2 years, without skipping a single day."
Giovanni mastered the Kargyraa technique with a range of two octaves. He also developed a great accuracy in recognizing and selecting the overtones with every overtone singing technique.

In 2014 he founded the method of overtone singing "4L'sMETHOD"  bringing the didactic program to the various workshops throughout Italy, and abroad through individual lessons on the web. He is currently one of the most appreciated Italian teachers, researchers and performers, and there are many enthusiasts from Italy and abroad who rely on him for the study of throat singing, in particular for Tuvan styles.
