ROLANDO GIAMBELLI: journalist, photographer and, from a very young age, a musician by passion, has transformed his life-long passion for The Beatles into an amazing array of Beatles fan events and resources. Way back in 1992, Rolando founded Beatlesiana d’Italia Associati www.beatlesiani.com, now the largest Beatles fan club outside of England. He serves as Managing Editor of the Beatlesiani D’Italia quarterly magazine, founded the Beatles Museum in Italy, hosted International Beatles Week in England, and has organized dozens of Beatles Festivals in cooperation with Sanremo, the Italian Cultural sector and RAI television.
