I was born in the province of Perugia, Italy, in 1981. After my classical studies and a degree in Communication Sciences in 2007, I moved to Rome to specialize in my great passion, photography, attending a course at the Experimental Centre of Photography Ansel Adams Over the years as a photographer, however, I never forgot journalistic writing, my other passion, and I managed to become a freelance journalist in 2016. I work as a photojournalist and journalist for the national newspaper Avvenire, in addition to other freelance collaborations with local newspapers and sports photo agencies.
My focus is on the reports: traveling, backpacking and camera. I love to walk in the mountains and venture along unknown paths in search of situations to photograph. Stories dealing with ethical and anthropological issues, but also with local traditions.
When I’m not a photographer I like to ride my motorbike, I love to read and I’m a big fan of J. R. R. Tolkien, a passion that has been inspiring my work for years, resulting in some photographic projects dealing with the “fantastic”, and also in the first four-handed book where photography meets illustration, entitled “Middle Art-Book”. I also enjoy myself as a radio speaker at Radio Gente Umbra, I am the editor-in-chief of the magazine Umbra Chiaroscuro and in the spare time, especially in the early morning, a runner.
