A lot of money and experience in chamber music, Colomba has collaborations with artists such as Gidon Kremer, Yuri Bashmet, Martha Argerich, Andrea Lucchesini, Frank Peter Zimmermann, Isabelle Faust, Maurizio Pollini and Hugo Wolf Quartet.

But Brunello is not only a great interpretation of classical music: the cellist Veneto has reserved space for projects that involve other codes and art forms, collaborating and interacting with characters and artists of different cultural events of belonging, such as actors Marco Paolini and Moni Ovadia, the singer-songwriters Gianmaria Testa and Vinicio Capossela, the astrophysicist Margherita Hack, the jazz musicians Uri Caine and Paolo Fresu.
