I was born in Italy on 1960 and I grew up with the landscape of Gulf of Naples and Vesuvio in front of my eyes.
When I was 12, an uncle gave me a Ferrania point-and-shoot camera, but I lost the same day: it wasn't a good debut! Later my father let me use his Zeiss Continette and when I was 17 I purchased my first reflex camera, a less expensive Zenith. After a year I bought a better camera and I began to work with some agencies.
At the same time I studied biology, because I wanted to start my career in nature conservation. So, my main interest in photography is about relationship between man and environment.
I got a formal training with the New York Institute of Photography and made further studies on technical and artistic issues by participating in workshops and courses (e.g. Adobe, Museum of Modern Art of New York, Magnum).
At the moment I follow several projects about social and nature conservation topics, collaborating with public and no-profit organisations, carrying out these assignments with my artistic aptitude.
I'm a member of the Commission on Education and Communication of International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and curator director of MuMi, the widespread museum of wildlife migration.
