I was born in Milano in 1946. My passions are computer software, photography, travel and visual arts. When I was (very) young, I photographed the jazz masters of the 1960s. You can see them on flickr at www.flickr.com/photos/robertopolillo. A few years ago I came back to photography, and went digital. Now I am mainly interest in impressionist photography. Many of these works can be seen on my other flickr page, in http://www.flickr.com/photos/rpolillo/.
