Fabio Zuffanti leaves La Maschera di Cera

After five albums, twelve years of career and several concerts around the world bassist and composer Fabio Zuffanti has decided to leave la Maschera di Cera, the progressive-rock band that the bassist formed in 2002.

by Peter Thelen, Published 2014-05-25

The main reason for this choice is the will of Zuffanti to concentrate himself fully on his solo career and on other projects (Hostsonaten, Aries, etc ...). Fabio would like to thank Alessandro Corvaglia, Agostino Macor, Maurizio Di Tollo and Andrea Monetti for these wonderful years of music and wish them all the best for the future of the band.
