I am an Italian photographer based in London.

After a Master Degree in pre and proto-historical Archaeology at the University of Padova in 2012 I decided to change my path coming to London to grow my skills in the field of photography.

In 2014 I completed the Master Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at London College of Communication.

As my background is strictly related to the documentation of the past, today I dig between the layers of our community to describe humanity and its behaviours. An anthropological research recorded through a lens that would like to offer a fair visual representation of the stories I have the pleasure to witness to.

My most consistent personal long-term project is related with one of the greatest passion of my life, Rugby. From non-professional Italian rugby to the main International events like The Six Nations and The Rugby World Cup 2007 and 2015 I am carrying on a reportage about rugby people and the wonderful atmosphere which sorrounds every rugby game. 

Since 2014 I am based in London and some of my photographs have been published on the Financial Time Magazine, The Guardian, International Gallerie, La Repubblica, Il Corriere della Sera and La Gazzetta dello Sport.
