With The Ladders, I portray the role of John Lennon. In over 20 years of live performances, I've had the opportunity to collaborate with many artists, including Ian Paice of Deep Purple as a vocalist. I teach singing at the Lizard music academies and hold diplomas from CET di Mogol and the West University of London. I also have qualifications as a sound technician for both live and studio settings.

I have over 20 years of musical experience and have played hundreds of concerts in Italy and abroad as a bassist, guitarist, and singer. I have a passion for Beatles-inspired musical instruments and also enjoy navigating the realms of computer graphics and music video production.

Guitar has been my passion since I was a teenager. I can't explain the feeling I get when I hold one in my hands: it's as if every note it produces makes me feel more alive. With The Ladders, I portray the voice and guitar of George Harrison. In my nearly thirty-year career as a musician, I've had the opportunity to perform in various musical genres, from Blues, Soul, Country & Western, to Classic Rock, Pop, and Hard Rock. I love how English bands manage to blend catchy melodies with profound and meaningful lyrics. For me, the British sound is an exciting and unique experience that I can't wait to interpret every night.

Mauro Cimarra

With The Ladders, I portray Ringo Starr, a drummer who is sometimes underestimated but has left a mark on the history of our instrument and how music is perceived by professionals and non-professionals alike! I have a degree in percussion from the conservatory and have dabbled in various musical languages, with jazz and improvisation being my main focus. I've had the opportunity to share music with Franco Cerri, M. Morganti, V. Johnson, D. J. Martin, N. Barbieri, R. Baas, among others. I have released 9 albums under various national labels.

As we all know, the Beatles were a quartet. But what would they be without orchestral parts, acoustic and electric pianos, organs, and all the instruments that contributed to their success? And here I am, thanks to a long background as a keyboardist and vocalist, developed in various formations ranging from Country, Blues, Rock, Funky to Progressive, to integrate the sonic realism down to the very last beat. I am an expert in computer science and a sound design enthusiast. However, when it's time to rock and roll, pure and unrestrained passion takes the stage.
