In 1981 he won the Premio Roma, and settled for two years in Rome, where he studied music composition with Franco Donatoni. During these years he was in touch with Goffredo Petrassi, who encouraged him, congratulating him on the work Trío No 2, performed at the Pontino Festival. Together, and working with the critic Mario Bortolotto, they arranged for the first meeting of Italian and Spanish composers, in 1982.
