"Every place is a goldmine. You have only to give yourself time, sit in a teahouse watching the passers-by, stand in a corner of the market, go for a haircut. You pick up a thread – a word, a meeting, a friend of a friend of someone you have just met – and soon any place becomes a mirror of the world, a window on life, a theatre of humanity."
Tiziano Terzani, A Fortune-Teller Told Me
Born in a small town in southern Italy, Mola di Bari, region Puglia, kissed by the sun and the sea, I built my visual education at the European Design Institute in Milan, where I graduated in three years in Virtual Design, In 2006, the turning point in my life, both professional and personal: transfers in Luxembourg. The love for photography has started late, I first had to fill my eyes of millions and millions of images to find out how beautiful and diverse is the world around us. At one point I felt the need to catch the emotions that went by the eyes, heart and soul and print them for ever on an image, with the presumption of gift to those who simply looks at them.
