              Architect. Born in 1960.
     He followed the expressive necessity in different fields: graphics, literature, photography.
     His gravures (acqueforti, acquetinte, vernis-mou) are imprompted to a fantastic realism with a lot of literary suggestions
     (from Poe to Buzzati, from Savinio to Borges), and have been exposed in some personal and collective shows
     They will be used in the successive project of  Port Rebųs .

      In  Variazioni per la mano sinistra (1996)  images are presented side by side to unusual stories :
      Sabbia in soffitta (Sand in the attic) - Esse est percipi - Il diavolo in valigia (The Devil in the suitcase) -
      Il V° postulato di Euclide, 
and others.

      From the suffused atmospheres of these stories started the idea to combine writing with photographs.
      In the selection of poetry  Tram di Suez  (1999), verses are mixed with B/W shots.

      In 2000 was published the novel Il Farmacista di Ampurdān (The Chemist of Ampurdān), a metaphysical plot suspended
      among history of art and philosophy
( the subject it’s the hidden meaning of a painting of Salvador Dalė ). 

       In 2001 follows La Congettura Goldbach (The Goldbach conjecture), a collection of stories not exactly of genre.
       In this period starts the photographic interest around abandoned places and ruins.
       From a collection of shots about this theme, was born the thematic site Lost and Least (www.lost-least.it),
       realized and improved with different photographic subjects.

       A  brief collection of verses Denti stretti (Tightened Teeth) still followed. 
       Always on the road of contaminations, passages and shreds of this works have become part of a
       photographic project focused on the theme of the decay of old buildings, as a sign of human interior decline : 
       Soul Ruins, which first unit was proposed to the Photographic Contest Fnac in 2010.

      The  selection proposed to Manege Expo 2011 in St.Petersburg
      collect shots about this way of using the camera: to focus outside for looking inside,
      to get a glimpse on what we usually don’t see, maybe we don't want to see at all.

      After  Lift to Atlantis  (2013) went off:  
      Ville des Ombres
: extemporary visions around Turin, then
      Dentro , a trip in the unusual architecture of a disused penitentiary, 
     Tre secondi ,  a selection in which the observer must ask to himself the real meaning 
of images
     Port Rebųs  , where the camera is used to fall deeply inside the details of gravures & acquetinte.

     The last  A Nord de Rién (2016), is the attempt to find the uncorrupted elegance of beauty
     also in the devastation of abandoned ruins.
