I was born on December 21 st, 1971 in Porretta Terme in the province of Bologna, Italy. In this town , nestled in the beautiful Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, I live and work. Since 2012 I am happily married to Sara, my first supporter, but also severe critic, which, with her objective assessments, gives me a great boost in the grow and improve. It is thanks to her that this website if it exists, because it is true that I had this project in mind for some years, but it was his full and unconditional support to win me any doubts and reticence.
Since childhood, photography has been my great passion: at the age of thirteen, I bought my first real camera, a Pentax K1000, with which I entered a wonderful world made of shutter speed, and aperture shots. Over the years, this passion has continued to evolve, and alongside it, my camera kit. I produce my photographs using 4 × 5 Large Format or 67 Medium Format systems. These are made up of various camera bodies and a copious set of lenses, which enable me to creatively interpret the most diverse shooting conditions. The repeated hikes in the beautiful valleys of the Apennines surrounding my house have always been a source of great joy for me and a way to reconcile with the hustle and bustle of every day. Sometimes though, with my wife, I allowed myself a dip in the city, of which you should find some trace in the photo gallery .
