I was born in Rome on 12 November 1988.
I was always fascinated by the complexity and beauty of nature, and so I decided to take a master's degree in Ecology at “Sapienza” University of Rome.
In order to better comprehend what I read from university books and field guides, I often spent a lot of time in many places of the central Apennines. During one of these field trips, I felt the need to portray the immense diversity and beauty I was surrounded by; therefore I decided to buy my first camera, without knowing that photography would soon become an essential part of my life.
As a result, the art of photography allowed me to incorporate different topics which are closely related to each other, which together form the basis of some of my photographic projects.
One of my main objectives represented in all of my projects is the aim to reconcile humans, through a curious, respectful and enthusiastic approach, with the natural and social context that he depends on.
It is difficult to explain what the art of photography means to me, but if I could express it in simple words it would represent the search for the “real” in all the things we are surrounded by, from joy to sadness, from amazement to emptiness and melancholy, with a vision and perspective of beauty.
In 2017 I published my book “Errant Keepers. Men and wolves in comparison” (Pandion edition) and presented it all over Italy in historical museums (in Rome, Venice, Turin, Florence et c.), National Parks, cultural organizations, universities, on national radio stations and on “Rai Tre” (“GEO&GEO”) and “Rai Cultura” television channels.
Some of my photos, along with my scientific and educational articles, have been published by a number of papers, such as "Terre Sauvage", "Biological Conservation", “Mammalian Biology”, "Asferico", "Gazzetta Ambiente" etc., and received several special mentions, among which “Le Coup de coeur du Jury” in the ambit of the “Nature Images Awards 2016” of IUCN (“International Union for Conservation of Nature”).
