Brief Summary
I was born in Mantua, a small town in the North of Italy where I still live and work, inthe 1973. I approached visual arts at the beginning of the 90s, as a self-taught artist: my university background relates to economics and social studies. I’m not a rockstar, I’m a killer.
Professional Experience
My first artistic experiences involved digital works with images manipulation and short films production. In 1999 I cooperated with DollyDesign, the first Italian web community dedicated to web design. In that period I also took part into the CWR - Creativo Web & Tv Festival, at the Triennale in Milan, where I reached the finals in the "Flash Animations" section and received the juries’ special mention at the 2000 Bardi Award with my project called "Pioggia Acida". In 2003 I joined the designers and artists collective group called Design(Radar and thanks to a specially modified image I reached the "Lost Paradise" contest finals organized by Diesel: this was the end of my digital artistic period. After that I attended a course in photography literacy and began to take photo only with an analog reflex. Meanwhile I contributed to the foundation of the Group of Photography “La Ghiacciaia” and of the “Pommefritz” collective, with the aim of meeting other artists and sharing my knowledge. Since 2005 I have been appearing in the photographers’ list of the German “” collective, which in 2007 issued its own anthology, with two pages dedicated to my photos.

In 2004 I began my expositive activity. Some of the most important expositions of this period include my admission to the biennals in Arad (Romania), Hong Kong, Caserta (Italy) Sofia (Bulgaria) Liverpool (Indipendent, Uk) and Cuenca (Ecuador), as well as the participation to the Photography Festival in Rome, to the BoxShock in Milan (Italy), to the Festival de la Luz in Buenos Aires (Argentina) to the Asiatic Photography Festival in Dhaka (Bangladesh) and to the artistic event RintracciArti (Mantua).  In 2007 two expositions dedicated to my works have taken place: one at the Bertolt Brecht gallery in Milan and the other in Haarlem (Holland), in the space of the art gallery ArtUnit. Other art galleries and associations have showed interest for my conception of photography, too, such as the Denver Sellars Project Space, the London Photographic Association, the Dask Gallery (Copenaghen), Infantellina Contemporary (Berlin) and B&B Gallery (Bielsko Biala, Polland).
