I was born in 1959 in Brescia (Italy), where I live and work.
Although I prefer to consider photography as the basis of my artistic representations, I have always used a variety of media to create my works: photography, words, music and theatre.
For me, artistic representation means the possibility of provoking thought, destabilization and sometimes even triggering a shift in the viewer's original world vision.
The protagonist and inspirer of my works has always been humanity, I am attracted to ordinary people, for me they are the true representatives of humanity: they are my models, beautiful, to be admired and admired.
Over the years I have collaborated with musicians for original theatrical works of images, poems and music, specially composed; I have worked on series of images for improvised musical performances or as visual enrichment to pieces of music; I have given my images for covers and booklets of some artists and writers.
Recently, I collaborated with anthropologists and digital engineers to develop the complex project on human migration, entitled 'Travel documents'.
