Jacopo Mai and Davide De Luca began studying piano at the Palmiero Giannetti Institute under the guidance of their respective teachers Gloria Mazzi and Giuliano Schiano. Their artistic paths initially seem to be divided: Jacopo Mai continues his studies under the guidance of M. Rivera in Livorno, Davide De Luca under the guidance of M. Hector Moreno in Siena. But the specialist degree sees them together again in Livorno, at the Mascagni Institute, where they both graduate with full marks. Both of them distinguished themselves in many famous national and international competitions, always finding the consensus of the juries, until, together with two other pianists from Grosseto, they composed a formation called "Piano Folìa", that is 4 pianists 40 fingers. It is the year 2015; Piano Folìa is invited to play in the edition of Orbetello Piano festival in torre saline - in August 2015 - and considering the great consensus of the audience they are invited in the Edition of 2016 as well. Piano Folìa performs in Siena too for the Review "La classica nel Tubo" and again in December 2016 for Rotaract of Monte Argentario. The experience of Piano Folìa consolidates not only the friendship between Jacopo and Davide, but also highlights the passion for the same composer - Liszt - that both of them cultivate since their first years of study; this common passion for Liszt leads them to express themselves in four hands for the Rassegna Eufonica in 2020; thus the Duo Mai - De Luca is born. On the occasion of the Dante Year 2021 at the invitation of the Rosa Parks Association and Maremma per Dante, the Duo performs Liszt's Dante Symphonie in the version for two pianos and female choir, at the Church of San Francesco in Grosseto; due to Covid restrictions the concert has been recorded and broadcasted on YouTube. Both are engaged in solo concerts and have also an intense teaching activity at the State Schools and the Liceo Musicale.
