Born in Piacenza, the bass Mattia Denti studied music and vocal technique there. In 2001 and 2002 he attended the opera course at the Spazio Musica in Genoa, which led to his appearance in two Verdi rôles at the end of year productions, Pistola in Falstaff and Sparafucile in Rigoletto. During the course he worked on the rôles of the Commendatore in Mozart’s Don Giovanni, Tom in Verdi’s Un ballo in maschera and Simone in Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi.

He subsequently won a scholarship for the 2003 opera course at Spazio Musica, and in 2004 sang the rôle of Zio Bonzo in Puccini’s Madama Butterfly. He also worked at the Opera de Nice, where he sang the rôle of Dottor Grenvil in Verdi’s La traviata. At the Summer Festival at the Anfiteatro Romano in Bene Vagienna, near Turin, he sang Sparafucile in Rigoletto and Gran Sacerdote in Nabucco. He has also performed from the sacred and lyrical repertoires in concerts around Italy.
