I was born in Milan in 1961 but while I was still a young boy my family moved to Florence. For this reason I now love Florence more than any other place in the world. I attended the Istituto d’Arte di Firenze until 1980 and graduated in Graphical Design. I went into cinematographic documentation and later the photojournalism.

In 1992, I was honoured by the Jury of the Italian Circuit of Young Artists as one of the most promising Italian photographers.

At the start of the nineties I left Florence for Germany, where I stayed for six years working for “The Image Bank” photo agency and subsequently working as a free-lancephotographer.

At the beginning of 1998 I visited Iraq, during what was a period of serious crisis for that country. The conditions of life in Iraq, as a result of being punished by international sanctions, are very hard for the major part of the population. Since this touching experience, I have continued my work with more and more enthusiasm and dedication.

In May 1999, I began to collaborate with the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), a United Nations Agency based in Rome. I travelled to Lebanon to take pictures for them and later, in February 2000, with the Spanish journalist Cristina Rius, we were sent to visit the barren Ixtlera region in the north of Mexico and later to Honduras and Salvador.

At the end of 1999 I moved to the United States, where I passed two years collaborated sending correspondence and reports to several Italian and Spanish media.

In December 2001 we are moved to Spain where, in February 2002 my son Domenico was born.

New York before the fall, exhibition of color photography

“New York before the fall” is an exhibition of color photographs taken during the two years the photographer spent in New York, from 1999 to 2001. The work displays a confident and optimistic nation, in command of its own destiny and proud of its identity, the image of an America that tragic events would soon contradict. In light of the tragedy of the Twin Towers and the current economic infirmity that grips America, from where it has spread to the world at large, this emblematic journey underscores the uncertainty of future prospects. The photographer presents a vision of an idealized world that, seen in hindsight, represents a visual document of an epoch that can be considered at its end.
