He trained as an ice skater but later turned his attention to singing after being bullied for not joining any school clubs or teams. He studied in Bochum, Germany before eventually attending Trier University where he graduated with degrees in Psychology and Business.
Challenges in Singing
For Pietro, the process is not always easy. After winning the eighth season of Germany’s best known singing competition, Deutschland sucht den Superstar, Pietro had to deal with his new-found fame as well as changes in his personal life that also affected his music.
In 2012, Pietro won Deutschland sucht den Superstar, an annual singing competition in Germany that allows aspiring artists to showcase their abilities. The winner is awarded a contract with Universal Music Group’s label Mercury Records and €250,000 as prize money. Whilst Pietro may have achieved his goal of becoming famous through DSDS and all the perks that come along with it, he hasn’t let this change him from the good-natured person he was before entering the competition.
After becoming a winner of the biggest televised talent show in Germany, Deutschland sucht den Superstar, Pietro was put into the spotlight. To date, he has been releasing several singles and making public appearances that showcase his talents as an artist. The media scrutinizes every single thing he does or says.

Pietro has done four live shows so far and his voice is perfect, unlike David Martinez who has to lip sync all the time. His favorite number was his version of Just Dance by Lady Gaga. He loves being on stage and interacting with the audience. He says that he can’t imagine life without music anymore, even when he’s at home by himself.
