Born in 1972, I currently live and work in the Province of Modena.

I took up photography approximately 6 years ago. My growing interest in photography led me to take an Italian Master’s Degree in photography with Edoardo Agresti.

As time passed, the way I live and conceive photography has changed and I have developed a greater affinity for social reporting, for delving in depth into specific topics. This interest has aroused a desire for greater knowledge of this field which led me to take various workshops with Francesco Zizola, Antonin Kratochvil, Anders Petersen, Alex Majoli, Franco Pagetti, Erica McDonald e Andrew Sullivan.
