In 1998 he was introduced to Robert Fripp's Guitar Craft in Salisbury, UK, and he kept studying with this technique since then.
He is well known for his 'Simple Music for Difficult People', a solo project with original music for electric guitar, described by the Press as "Progressives Echoes for the Third Millennium"
Inspired by the craftsmanship and poetry of Mechanical Art, Fabio Mittino collaborated with some of the world's best Automata makers, like François Junod (Switzerland), Keith Newstead (Cornwall), Teun de Vijs (Netherlands) and Susumu & Hideki Higashino (Osaka, Japan).
His music mirrors the craftsmanship and intricacy of those contemporary mechanical sculptures, while retaining that mixture of innocent awe and wonder.
American jazz pianist, composer, bandleader and educator Ahmad Jamal wrote about him:
"Fabio is a wonderful, talented guitarist. I took his cd to the States and they listened to his performance, and they loved it like I do!"
