Sergio Preden, known in Rovinj by his nickname Gàto (cat), began to sing in the 1950s, whilst still a youngster. As a professional singer he performed in Switzerland, Italy and Monte Carlo, and in the 1970s, after a long absence, he returned to his birthplace Rovinj where he works today.

Songs from the album "Gàto canta Ruveigno", performed in Rovinj's original language, and excellently interpreted by Gàto, represent the core of emotions, passion and beauty of Rovinj, the pearl of the Adriatic. Live performances by Rovinj's nightingale can be enjoyed at various Batana Ecomuseum events, from the Festivals of Mali Škver to the Spàcio Matika.
