I was born in Papiano, Perugia on the 8th of September 1986. I was studying Science in College when I’ve been thunderstruck by contemporary art. This Passion of mine led me to undertake a theoretical-artistic path that developed first towards Philosophical leanings during my bachelor degree, a journey that brought me to focus my dissertation on Aesthetics and write “Arte e Artista nella dottrina delle Idee di Schopenhauer”, and achieving 110 cum laude. It is through in depth studies and practice that I have enhanced my artistic discipline attending a Master of Science in Photography at School of Fine Arts of Brera in Milan, graduating with 110 cum laude titling my dissertation “Qui e Altrove: divagazioni sospese sull’immagine contemporanea”.
Thanks to my education, I have started acting both as writer in contemporary art topics, and as artist by showing a production that is an outcome of theoretical-philosophical sparks. I see the camera as an extension of thoughts rather than an eye’s lengthening. I am not looking for fleeing instants but hunting overloaded thoughts. I live and I work between Milan and Papiano, but if you are looking for me during summer you will find me in Levanzo.
