Born on 1984 in the Italian east coast, after graduating in Industrial Design, I have been working at Politecnico di Milano as Research Fellow in the Department of Design and Industrial Engineering. In 2012 I graduated from CFP Bauer in Milan and during 2016-17 I attended the Master in Photography at IUAV in Venice. I have been assisting Italian master photographer Guido Guidi in Cesena and collaborated with Thomas Mailaender in Paris. My projects have been exposed both in Italy (Centro Pecci in Prato, Fondazione Fabbri in Pieve di Soligo, FAST in Treviso, Spazio Tadini in Milan) and France (Arles and Paris). In 2017 I been shortlisted in several international contests like Lucie Foundation Scholarship, Francesco Fabbri Award, Photogrvphy Grant. In 2018 I have been awarded the first prize at San Fedele per l’Arte Contemporanea in Milan and my dummy Ruota has been shortlisted at Kassel Dummy Award and Aarhus Photobook Week Dummy Award.
