I was lucky enough to born in Città della Pieve, a small medieval town on the border between Umbria and Tuscany, one the most beautiful areas in the world, under cultural and naturalistic point of view.
In the studio of a local painter, I shaped my visual taste and when, after 20 years, I began photography, I immediately fell in love with it.

After a first cautious approach to digital and analogic photography, I’ve focused my attention on polaroids. In recent years I’ve only taken pictures with Impossible films and Polaroid Originals film, moving from single images to wider series.

Here you can find some of my series and also some miniseries I’ve photographed during my travels around Italy and world.

The female body is one of my favourite subjects, like urban night panoramas that recall the Edward Hopper gloomy atmospheres and noir movies from the Hollywood golden age.

I’ve had the pleasure of exhibiting my polaroids in several collective exhibitions and some of my pictures are part of photography books published in Italy.

I’m currently based in Perugia, Italy.

If you would like to know more about my photography works, would like to order a print/commission, or would like to feature me and my images in a press feature please do
get in touch. I’d love to hear from you.
