I grew up in a house full of books of mythology, art and photography. In 1989 my first 35mm film, and my first fantasy novel. The dialogue between Ancient and Contemporary is inscribed in my personal and professional path. Humanist inspired, I’ve landed from classical studies to anything that sounds www, convinced that the knowledge of languages is the technical prerequisite for creativity.
In 2002 I founded in Milan the media agency Futuraweb, winning many technical prizes for web design and social media strategy projects. Recently I created “Mimesis”, a project which brings together different artistic disciplines (poetry, painting, music, dance, photography) under the same mood, mixing ancient and contemporary suggestions. Today, beyond web design, fine art photography and creative writing, I think of myself as a restless art wanderer.
In photography, pictorial reminiscences find in post production the way to make the surface (screen or paper) appear as if it were dotted with splashes of color. “Fixing” with light and color the extraordinary simplicity of nature – especially the humble landscape – it translates to “telling” the current context, which in truth is a journey into the past. So pictorialism returns as a way, as a personal search to unite modern medium and a substance that has an historic flavor and character.
The storytelling, which stands behind the “fiction” of painting, never intends to go beyond art, but wants to “experience” (in the etymological sense of “cross a path”) new visions of reality: along the line separating, and at the same time unites, languages and figurative expressions.
