Verdi was born in Rome.
He has written musical compositions from chamber to orchestral
genres that have been performed at festivals and in concerts. His treatise of
musical theory "Organizzazione delle altezze nello spazio temperato"
(1998) deals with the study of the various combinatorial possibilities of
sounds according to systematic rules. In "Caleidocicli musicali.
Simmetrie infrante dei suoni" (2010) he developed the concept of a
musical kaleidocycle as result of a vertical musical structure changing into a
horizontal structure. He used kaleidocycles for composing works based on
chords that connect with others according to prearranged transposition levels.
His many writings include articles and monographic essays such
as "Aleksandr Skrjabin tra musica e filosofia" (1991), "Kandinskij
e Skrjabin: realtą e utopia nella Russia pre-rivoluzionaria" (1996), "Franz Liszt e la sua musica nel cinema"
(2014) that particularly deal with the relations between music and visual arts and with
the connection between sounds and color.
Verdi has written many musical reviews. He has been an active promoter of
cultural events and festivals. He was the musical advisor for organizations as
the Accademia Filarmonica of Bologna, the Associazione Mozart-Italia,
A.Gi.Mus., the Centro Italiano di Studi Skrjabiniani, the Centro Studi
Farinelli and "Alfeo Gigli" International Festival of Composition.
President of the Fondazione Istituto Liszt, he is an honorary member of Scriabin Society of
America and part of the Artistic-Scientific Committee of Sibelius Society
Italy. During the spring semester 2003, he was guest professor at the Frostburg State
University in Maryland. Verdi has been Professor of Composition at the
conservatories Adria, Bologna, Milano and Roma.
