He won many awards in several international competitions, including the 1st prize at the 1991 Vittorio Gui International Competition in Florence.

Encouraged by Christopher Hogwood, he has devoted himself to the study of historically informed practice, using Baroque and Classical violins. He has conducted various string orchestras, such as: the Academy of Ancient Music in London; the Handel&Haydn Society in Boston; the Tokyo Chamber Orchestra; the Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto; the Orchestra da Camera di Mantova; and the Orquesta Filarmonica de Gran Canaria. In 1994, he founded L’Arte dell’Arco, an ensemble that specializes in Venetian music of the 17th and 18th Centuries.

Mr. Guglielmo has conducted Baroque operas for several years now: the modern premiere of Paisiello’s La Daunia Felice (recorded by Dynamic); D. Scarlatti’s La Dirindina at the MiTo Festival in Turin (recorded for CPO); Vivaldi’s first opera, Ottone in Villa, at the Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza, production that was acclaimed by both critics and the public and will be released by Sony/BMG Classics. In 2009, he was invited back to Vicenza to conduct the modern premiere of Piccinni’s Il finto turco, which was recorded by CPO. He has recently toured Australia with the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra and in Palermo conducting Vivaldi's Le quattro Stagioni.

He has recorded more than one hundred CDs for: Deutsche Harmonia Mundi; BMG Classics; Chandos; ASV; Denon; CPO; Stradivarius; Pavane; Denon Nippon Columbia; Altus; Velut Luna; Musicaimmagine; Tactus; and Dynamic. Many of his recordings have obtained great critical acclaim: Diapason d’Or; Disc of the Month for both Gramphone and Fono Forum; and Premio Internazionale del Disco A. Vivaldi, to name only a few.
