Gaetano Nasillo obtained a cello diploma at the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory in Milan under the teaching of Rocco Filippini, with whom he later attended classes at the Accademia W. Stauffer in Cremona. After conducting a concert activity with the most prominent contemporary music groups and in the main Milanese orchestras, he dedicated himself to the study of the performance on the instruments of time, associating with the cello, the study of the viola da gamba, which he perfected at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis with Paolo Pandolfo.
He collaborates especially as a soloist with the most prestigious European ensembles including Ensemble 415, Concerto Vocale (conducted by René Jacobs), Zefiro, the J. Joachim Quartet, The Concert des Nations (conducted by Jordi Savall), the Ensemble Aurora, and with whom he regularly performs in concerts throughout Europe, the United States, South America and Australia.
