Raffael was born in 2006 in Richterswil (ZH) into a family with Swiss and Italian roots, but lived in Italy for most of his life. He joined the studio of Christophe Berruex at the Zakhar Bron School of Music in 2019.
Raffael began his musical studies by learning to play the organ, which he studied in Pescara, his hometown at that time, at the Conservatorio “Luisa d’Annunzio” with the well-known organist Roberto Marini.
Raffael already participated in the school’s concerts in Zurich. He plays regularly in duo with his sister Lena Lisa.
