Valentino has worked in the music industry for the last 20 years, having worked with leading brands, companies and artists and having founded himself several successful companies. From running some of the biggest clubs in the world, such as legendary Barraca in Valencia (Spain) or the globally renowned Amnesia Ibiza, often ranked among the top 3 events venues in the world, to founding a fashion and art magazine (LaMilk Magazine), a record label (Barraca Music) or managing himself some great artists with international success. Valentino has also consulted for numerous global brands on music and brand strategy ( Red Bull, Ford, Burn, BlackBerry, Pioneer DJ..) and has promoted concerts with artists like Snoop Dog, 50cent, Primal Scream , Skrillex or Richie Hawtin to name a few. But after a frenetic lifestyle working at the mecca of electronic music, in 2013 he moved to South Africa and founded the NGO Bridges for Music with some leading figures in the music industry. The aim of this organisation is to unite the music industry to leave a positive impact in underprivileged communities, bringing new opportunities through a new age educational model. Valentino’s passion over the last 5 years has been understanding better the needs and opportunities in South African townships, exploring the future of education and harnessing the power of his international network to generate a more sustainable impact.
