Ivan's second son, he was born and raised in Rimini. He began his musical activity as soon as he came of age together with his drummer brother Tommy, touring clubs and venues all over Italy up to opening concerts by important groups and artists such as Renato Zero, Negramaro, Morgan, Niccolò Fabi and Max Gazzè. In 2008 he forms a rock group called Stoner-rock Carnera, which debuts with the EP First Round and with which he opens the Italian concert of Zakk Wylde. Later he moved to the United States, where he continues his musical activity.
Influenced by American folk and electronic rock music scene, he returns to Italy and starts the “Viaggi e intemperie” project, which pays homage to his father Ivan Graziani. Always in homage to his father and under the care of Pepi Morgia, he has been on a tour since November 2009, which merges into the live album “Filippo canta Ivan Graziani”, dedicated exclusively to his father's most famous songs.
