I

I am a photographer. Born in a small town of the Italian Provincia, I am now living in Rome, a city I have finally learned to love. Specializing in architectural and industrial photography, since 2015, I have dedicated myself to capturing the spaces that hosted the most iconic fashion shows in recent years: I photographed the architecture of Ferrari's first runway show in the Maranello factory, Gaetano Pesce's “Come stai” and “Vieni a vedere” projects for Bottega Veneta, Zegna's show among Anselm Kiefer's Seven Heavenly Palaces, and Alessandro Michele's last 'Twinsburg' show for Gucci
