"Photography for me is a tool to investigate
the reality around us without pretending
to find answers.”
I was born in Italy, in the green region of Abruzzo. I became interested in photography in my secondary school during the photography classes of the teacher/artist Romolo Bosi that made me discover the magic of the darkroom and the wonder of art. I started with more continuity to take pictures during adolescence, when my father gave me an Olympus Om-1 that I still hold with affection.
I majored in art history, sociology and literature at University of Bologna. During this time I become very interested about the cultural identity and about the other cultures with thanks to the class of M. Montanari, Allovio and G. Cane.
For this reason I started traveling and using my camera as a tool to be able to discover other cultures and mine through the meeting with others.
I prefer to be focused on long-term photographic projects that allow me to spend time in places and with the locals. I'm particularly interested in projects that concern "the identity in the border areas with a look and to the effects of the relationship between tradition and modernity".
From 2010 I traveled extensively in Asia for many years for my work "Room of dust"
a long-term project on "identity in Asia and his connections with the West culture".
I currently deepening the Caucasus area for a long-term project on the identity of the Caucasus and the influences in the territory between East and West.
