"Folk-based fiddle player
"Giulio Venier is a folk experimental music lover"
- Linda Shine, Music of life magazin
I"I was born in Trieste, but for work reasons my family residence changed many times. During my childhood, I lived in Rome, Stockholm, Skogas, Venice, Milan and in Udine. For the past twenty years, I've been living in San Daniele del Friuli (northeast Italy). I was lucky to have had a family of artists and musicians, although their stories were often tragic. Music has always helped me .... It is my life.
"I like to improvise in life as much as I do in music. I like classical music......not classical musicians! Nor do I care for the environment of classical music. Perhaps due to educational conflicts. For millennia musicians performed using only their memory. I love all kinds of music and I can play anything if it's fun for me. Difficult things become easy if you put some effort into it. I currently play with a lot of musical groups in a variety of situations: folk, rock, acoustic, electric, theatres or pubs, wherever possible... In Italy, if you are not famous, or not part of the "Maria de Filippi team" you have to make things happen by yourself !"
