Born in Piacenza, Italy, in 1985, I fell in love with photography relatively early, traveling in the wake of my uncles around France, Spain and Portugal and always armed with film cameras. I started with a rickety old film camera, and then I moved to digital reflex four years ago.
My passion for photography has gone hand in hand with a passion for architecture, especially contemporary. I admire the works of great architects such as Santiago Calatrava, Zaha Hadid and Frank Gehry. For this reason my photographs have always had a special consideration for architecture, and they are often linked with the human figure, without whom the structure would not exist.
The search for the details and the geometries in architecture always coincided more with the search for what is essential and conceptual in my surroundings, which is possible to see in my recent works as they are often based on minimalism.
I received a honorable mention in category Architecture: Buildings at MIFA 2016 with the series 'Secret code' and a honorable mention in the same category at IPOTY 2015 (International Photographer Of The Year) with the series 'Living architectures'.
I have been awarded the 1st place in category "Visions" at "Milano 3x100" ( 3 shots for 100 years - Milano allora, ieri e oggi - Dedicated to Pigi Rabolini).
I have been awarded the 1st place in category Architecture: Buildings at MIFA 2015 and the 3rd place in the same category at ND Awards 2015.
I have been selected as commended photographer in top50 category Architecture at Sony Awards 2015.
I received a honorable mention in category Architecture at ND Awards 2014 and PX3 2014.
