At age 23, Filippini won the Geneva International Music Competition, launching his career as a soloist.

As an advocate of contemporary music, many of today's most prominent composers have written works for him, including Franco Donati, Luciano Berio, and Giovanni Sollima.

Filippini was a professor at the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome since 2003. Prior to this, he was a cello professor at the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory in Milan. In 1985, he founded the Walter Stauffer Academy in Cremona alongside Salvatore Accardo, Bruno Giuranna, and Franco Petracchi.

Our condolences are with Mr. Filippini family, friends, students, and colleagues.
