In his career, Cecchetti has been photographing music and entertainment performers in Europe and Japan. His portfolio contains pictures taken in more than 1000 concerts for over 600 artists. His portrait of Mick Jagger has been chosen for the exhibition "Mick Jagger. The photobook", which was presented in the French photography festival Rencontres d'Arles in summer 2010. Among other portraits: Madonna, Nick Cave, Aerosmith, U2, Depeche Mode, George Michael, Lady Gaga, Elvis Costello, Bruce Springsteen.
In 2011 his Visions project focused on the artistic content within music shows.
In the same year his picture of ZZ Top was selected to be in the book Music:Box, edited by Gino Castaldo and published by Contrasto. The same book has been translated and published worldwide by six other publishers.
