Born and raised in Siena (Tuscany). I started photography in 1974at the local School of Art. Later I began some personal and group researches (Lega Fotografica dell’Arci , SienaFotoClub, actually also FIAF and GPU) about local folk festivals such as the Palio di Siena or almost disappeared fairs, studies about art, architecture, anthropology, archaeology, sport (very fond of athletics).
A special attention was given to the rural traditions of my mother land, expecially to those that are quickly disappearing and two exhibits were dedicated to my work. Furthermore I like portraiture and glamour.
My analogue beginning allowed me to focus and specialize in slides and B&W printing I loved to make on my own. Since 2005 I mostly work digital+post production giving anyhow more importance to shooting.
