He has been pursuing a PhD in Arts at Université libre de Bruxelles about the influence of the folk element in the interpretation of some of the piano works by Argentine composer Alberto Ginastera (1916-1983), while further refining his skills as a concert musician in Boyan Vodenitcharov's class at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel and pursuing his interest in chamber music repertoire by being enrolled in the Chamber Music Masterclasses at the prestigious Opheus Instituut in Ghent.
Salvatore has been awarded several prizes in international competitions, such as the « International Caraglio Competition » in Italy and the « Concours Festival – Répertoire Pianistique Moderne » in France.
