Based in Bolzano, South Tyrol, Italy, but available everywhere.


I am an Italian photographer and writer. My approach to photography began in 2008, after graduating in Science of Cultural Heritage at the University of Trento and then becoming an author of texts and images. Some of my photographs have been published in newspapers like La Repubblica, Internazionale, La Stampa, Dove, and Meridiani Montagne.

As a child, I spent my afternoons reading, devouring one book after another. As an adult, I have remained a great lover of stories in all forms. Even in photography, I am interested in observing how things, places, and people come to life, transform and interact.

Born and raised in a small town in a mountainous area, I have had a strong connection with nature for as long as I can remember. I like adventure, exploring unfamiliar paths, and studying maps, the landscape, and the elements that make it up. From a landscape, you can tell a lot about its inhabitants’ character and culture.

At the same time, I like people and their stories. I have worked as an educator and teacher in various contexts, such as high schools, universities and courses for migrants and refugees. Through this, I have trained in listening and empathy.

My research starts here. I approach each subject by observing the dialogue and the conflicts it establishes with the surrounding environment, listening and asking questions that guide me in the composition of the shot and the narrative structure in which to insert it.
