I was born in Ivrea, on the foothills of the Italian Alps, in the second half of the '80s.
Olivetti was one of the top personal computer manufacturers in Europe, Chernobyl was still just an unremarkable town in northern Ukraine, and Italy was ruled by the five-party coalition known as Pentapartito.
I lived between Piedmont, Tuscany and Lazio, learning to accept and appreciate change as a natural and unavoidable part of life. This also allowed me to come in contact with many different realities.
I was drawn to photography by accident, during university years, and I decided to turn it into my full-time job.
With time, my profession became a lifestyle as well—one that forces me to get out of my comfort zone and constantly look at the world with fresh eyes.
Today I live in Switzerland, in a town nestled in the mountains that overlook Zug's lake, a short distance from Zürich.
About my photography
I believe a photographer is first and foremost a craftsman—and that creating a picture is a process requiring equal parts of experience and instinct.
The purpose of my work is to depict reality through the lens of my experience and instinct, while remaining as true to myself as possible.
I strive to do this because I believe this is the best way to offer something unique and honest to the people who trust me to record their memories.
Every moment of my life, every new person I meet, every picture I take, select and print—they all teach me something new and make me a better photographer.
