An Italian-American attorney and musician, Gianni Mendes Toniutti, is on his way to becoming a sensation in the entertainment sector due to his passionate and vibrant personality. Originally from Brazil but raised in Italy, Gianni comes from a family full of artists, including his father, a guitar player “aficionado” of Flamenco. His father moved in a social circle that comprised of several well-known artists of his time, including Sabicas, Andres Segovia, and Felix de Utrera, all very famous Flamenco and Classical guitar players in the sixties and seventies.
Love for law, Music and Entertainment
Growing up in a house where interaction with music and art was typical, it was evident that the young Gianni, who already had a vibrant personality, would eventually fall in love with the industry. The passion for performing in front of an audience and pursuing a career in music, helped him set his life goals. When he was just ten years old, the young boy, who was in love with music, started playing guitar. Living between Italy and Brazil, he began learning classical and Brazilian music. After spending time in Spain with his family, the aspiring musician discovered the folkloric music of Southern Spain, Flamenco. Gianni’s father was already a huge fan of this musical style and even had friends who were Flamenco artists. It provided Gianni’s amateur mind exposure to this musical style, and he decided to excel in Flamenco music. He even became one of the very few students of Flamenco maestros Manolo Sanlucar and Enrique de Melchor.
