The Itaslian harpsichordist, Mariolina De Robertis, was born in Florence, and lives in Rome where he studied with Ferruccio Vignanello.

Since his debut in contemporary music, which took place in 1959 with the performance of Serenata di Petrassi conducted by Bruno Maderna, Mariolina De Robertis devoted himself with equal interest to the music of ancient and contemporary.

He has performed with conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Bruno Maderna, Bour, Gerard Schwarz, Peskó, Meckat, Ferro, Panni, Gelmetti and Eotvos.
