I was born in Italy (1977) and currently I'm based in Milan.
I explore social and gender-related issue in our society.
My artistic research investigates the "self", exploring its relationship with the world, with the social and natural space that surrounds the human being.
Body, identity, and emotions are my keywords.
I got a degree in Natural Science for which I carried out a research project about lions in Tanzania and for five years I had been a geological and naturalistic guide in Iceland and Morocco.
After the war I visited several times for humanitarian purposes Sarajevo where I shot a documentary.
I am now working using photography, video, installations and mixed media.
I'm a Leica Camera Ambassador.
Besides editorial assignments and publications, I do corporate work for clients and agencies such as:
- TWBA, Italy
- Franke, Swiss;
- Apliq, Zurich;
- ABB, Milan;
- Young & Rubicam, Milan;
- Fondazione Corriere della Sera, Milan;
- Schindler, Zurich;
- Burson-Marsteller, Milan
If I could live a different life, I would only swap it with an extreme mountain climber: one who pushes his mental and physical limits to makes discoveries.
