2017 - Stefano Ianne has the idea of ​​creating an instrument that only uses his hands in a vacuum, piloting one of his synthesizers. The desire is to be able to use it in concerts, especially with symphony orchestras. Stefano begins to write the project in detail. After finishing a first draft of the project and after examining the resources available on the market Stefano decides to contact Enrico Viola and offer him a collaboration. Enrico, technically analyzing the project, is enthusiastic and agrees to start a brain storming that will lead to the next design work.

2018 - This is a crucial year for the project as the first version of the software, version 1.0, is completed in the first half of the year. Stefano realizes that additional resources are needed and therefore prepares a substantial business plan to present to possible investors. In the meantime, there is an opportunity to have the Politecnico di Torino as privileged partner. The opening, therefore, of the start-up at Lingotto gives the possibility of obtaining funding from the Piedmont Region through the FacilitoXTo project, promoted by the Municipality of Turin. The trademark is filed.



2019 - Having obtained the participation of new investors, we move on to version 2.0, further developing the software and moving from a version created for simple entertainment to the study of a more flexible modular version devoted to rehabilitation Stefano Ianne draws on the skills in music therapy, gained with his degree in Music therapy (with specialization in severe brain injury acquired) at the Conservatory of Ferrara and with a two-year internship at the San Giorgio Hospital in Ferrara. In the meantime, he also gained experience in the field by performing several music therapy sessions with autistic patients. These latest experiences reveal to him the fact that MidiFly® could have become a very useful object for neurorehabilitation. We then start a team work in collaboration with Professor Stefano Navone, music therapist and supervisor, for the development of a protocol for using the MidiFly® for music therapy use. The studies are completed and the protocol is presented in Aalborg in the exchange of the 11th European Music Therapy Conference.

2020 - An experimental MidiFly® laboratory is opened at the Faculty of Magisterium of the University of Valencia, conducted by Dr. Mariangela Lippolis. Stefano Ianne moves to live in Valencia to follow the developments of the project.
in the same year, the fundrising project was launched on Kickstarter and work on version 3.0 of the software. This version provides for the extension to all operating system platforms and the extension to the use of many infrared cameras. Online World Congress of Music Therapy - The Polyrhythms of Music Therapy.

A fundamental part of the consultancy work is entrusted to the lawyer Marco Ferrero who becomes a partner of MidiFly srl.
