The Ceasars is a group of three Italian music producers: Paolo "Ceasar" Catoni, Marco "PStarr" Pistella and Francesco Rigon.


The trio was originally known (until 2012) as Ceasars Productions and their production is divided between Italy and the United States.

In the United States, they have cooperated with various hip hop artists such as Styles P, B.G. and Jadakiss, and R&B artists such as Avery Storm. In 2014, Avery Storm's EP Audiobiography, featuring Jadakiss, Styles P and N.O.R.E. was released.

In 2013, with "Red Line"[1] they started a project with New York-based singer and songwriter Michael Brunnock (winner of the 2012 David di Donatello Award as performer of the soundtrack composed by David Byrne of Talking Heads for the film This Must Be the Place by Paolo Sorrentino).[2]

In Italy, they have produced music for a variety of major artists including Baby K, Guè Pequeno, Gemitaiz, Ghemon and others.

In 2011, together with Italian rapper Amir, they composed the original soundtrack of Scialla!, the most awarded Italian film in 2011 directed by Francesco Bruni and shot in Rome. The twelve tracks were published by EMI Music Publishing Italy and the official videoclip of the film directed by Gianluca Catania won the 2012 Roma Videoclip Award. For this film, the Ceasars were also nominated for the 2012 David di Donatello and Nastro d'Argento (silver ribbons)[3] and won the 2012 Premio Cinema Giovane for Best Original Soundtrack.

In 2014, together with Michael Brunnock, they created "Peaches and Cream", the title track of the film Noi 4 directed by Francesco Bruni.

In 2016, they produced the soundtrack of #Twerkumentary, a documentary about twerking directed by Diana Manfredi.[4]
