I

I am a photographer and I've turned 30. I was born in a rocky old town in Italy, I grew up in an advertising agency and studied photography in Rome at ISF-CI. I've searched my home on both shores of the Atlantic ocean, living in London, Brooklyn and Barcelona for a while. Today I’m based in Rome and Milan.

In 2018 I have been selected as shortlisted photographer in the Professional Architecture category at the 2018 Sony World Photography Awards, thanks to my series "Mediterranean Sunset in Siponto".
