I am a freelance photographer specializing in landscape and outdoor photography, especially in the mountains.
I was born in Siena (Tuscany, Italy) and I lived the first years of my childhood between this town and a village at the foot of Mount Amiata.
Since I was a child, therefore, I was surrounded by an enormous heritage of masterpieces of Italian art, and by the priceless landscapes of the province of Siena where there are four UNESCO world heritage sites.
The passion for art and nature, exploration and adventure have grown with me.
Following my drawing skills, I attended a lower secondary school with artistic orientation and I could soon admire the works of Michelangelo Buonarroti, of which I was fascinated.
Even the study of the piano and subsequently, as a self-taught, of the guitar, helped to develop in me an ever greater sensitivity.
At the same time, I began to discover new mountains facing ever more challenging treks.
After the classical high school and my university studies in Natural Sciences, I attended the International School of Photography and Visual Storytellilng Apab-Alinari in Florence, where I obtained the European Diploma in Photography. I also participated in various courses and workshops, in particular at the Fondazione Fotografia in Modena.
I have always loved to explore and every year I try to discover new mountains, get to know the people who live there, deeply feel the soul of nature, tackling increasingly challenging and exciting treks, ranging from the Apennines to the Dolomites and the Alps up to trekking among the highest peaks in the world in Nepal.
Today I live between Siena and Valsassina, in the Lombard Prealps where I found my "mothers mountains".
Living immersed in art and nature has trained me as an artist allowing me to refine sensitivity, curiosity and aesthetic taste, to give value and respect what surrounds me.
Today I am particularly interested in issues related to the conservation of the natural world and environmental issues, with particular attention to the relationships between man and nature.
Through the union of art and nature, my photographs want to be a declaration of love for our planet.
With them I want to tell the absolute beauty - which still exists and resists despite the multiple abuses to which it is subjected every day - in relation to the human being, to make each person grow the knowledge, awareness and sensitivity so as to create a condition of harmonious and peaceful coexistence with the natural world.
Every single natural subject has an infinite value and a sense in the global balance. Everyone must feel proud to be part of so much beauty and responsible for its protection over time.
