Claudio Santambrogio studied traverso at the Sweelink Conservatorium in Amsterdam with Marten Root.
He has been active as a flutist in both the fields of contemporary and early music.

He is increasingly dedicating his work to the late Middle Ages, combining music with literature, and working as an actor alongside his musical performances.
Currently, he is researching the history of the transverse flute as well as the earliest Italian troubadours.
