#TalentiUniSR: Giammarco De Mattia

I am so inspired by Brian May, Queen’s guitarist, but also a Doctor in astrophysics, because he brilliantly managed to combine art and science in his life”. Already from this statement we understand who Giammarco De Mattia is, a student of our International MD Program and one of our #TalentiUniSR: a life equally dedicated to study and music. Mainly a guitarist (“from 6 strings to 12 strings, acoustic and electric”), he also plays bass, harmonica and mandolin. Since September 2017 he has been the contact person to the student group UniSR IoCiSuono, the Music Festival that brings together artists – musicians and singers – hidden behind UniSR students (and teachers). His great hobby is to build his own instrumentation: in 2012 he designed and built his own guitar with two handles, and still continues to build his amplifiers. Since October 2017 he has been an integral part of The Tambourine Men, a group of musicians passionate about 60s and 70s music; he is working on the recording of an album with production, coordination and direct participation of Lucio Fabbri, violinist and multi-instrumentalist of the Premiata Forneria Marconi (PFM), as well as musical director of the talent show X Factor Italia.

Your University Studies

I am attending the International MD Program (class of 2021) at the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University

Why you enrolled at the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University

Because it is my ambition to project myself into an international context with solid scientific bases and with a significant hospital experience behind it. In fact, UniSR provides us students with the professionalism of well-known teachers who guarantee the quality of the training program

What opportunities our University has given you

So far UniSR has fully met my expectations of student in Medicine and Surgery. Moreover, it also gave me the opportunity to express my passion in the artistic-musical field, and favored the discovery of my attitudes to the management of events I was unaware before

What you currently deal with

In addition to being a student, I take care of the organization and the artistic direction of all university events that include musical moments. In fact, since September 2017 I have been the contact person to the UniSR IoCiSuono student group, which includes musicians who hide behind the students of our University

The strong point of studying at San Raffaele

The forefront structures, facilities and equipment, with access to the departments of San Raffaele Hospital, one of the most prestigious hospitals in Italy

Your best Quality
