I was born in 1967 in San Gimignano, and here I decided to live and work.
Since I was a young boy, the passion for photography has fascinated me, at the beginning because I felt I was immortalizing happy moments. And as I grew up I felt more and more that this hobby could become a serious occupation.
As early as 1997 I had the chance to illustrate catalogues and books in collaboration with several national and international magazines (Condé Nast, Rusconi, Mondatori and others). My first book “Viaggio nella Campagna Toscana” was published in 1998 after long and careful work so as to lead the reader on a poetic and aesthetic journey through the beauty of Tuscany. My wife Renata and I then decided to open a photo shop in San Gimignano, the first of its kind to sell colour and black and white photographs taken by me and printed in my own workshop.
Our La Bottega del Sale, the medieval “Salt Shop” in the Piazza Duomo, was inaugurated in April 2000 where we started this beautiful adventure which has brought us such great satisfaction.
