Of the various projects realized, also a sound track for Lo stallo, film of Silvia Ferreri.
Various are the collaborations, most of them prestigious ones. An example above all: Last Minute, forerunner of excellent profile of the album of Ivano Fossati, Musica Moderna, contains besides the original, six versions of other young artists, through which LeLe Battista stands out, that were chosen by the Genovese Maestro judging them the most interesting part of the future of Italian music.
