Cristina Galietto (Guimaraes International Guitar Festival)
Cristina Galietto’s musical studies have been strongly influenced by the presence of her father Alberto, a classical guitar teacher, who introduced her to this wonderful musical instrument. At the age of 10, she started attending the Conservatory of Music “San Pietro a Majella” in Naples.
