The Emotional Reportage
I was born in Foligno in the province of Perugia in 1981.
After a course of classical studies and after graduating in Communication Sciences in 2007, I moved to Rome to specialize on my great passion, photography, attending the course of studies at the Experimental Center of Photography Ansel Adams. Over the years as a photographer, however, I never forget the journalistic writing, my other passion and I can become a journalist in 2016. I work as a photojournalist and journalist for the national newspaper Avvenire, as well as other collaborations from freelance with local newspapers and sports photo agencies.
My predisposition is reportage: traveling, backpacking and camera. I love walking in the mountains and venturing along unknown paths in search of situations to photograph. Stories of both ethical, anthropological and local traditions.
When I’m not a photographer I like traveling by motorbike, I love reading and I’m a big fan of J.R.R. Tolkien, a passion with which I have been working for years on photographic projects on the “fantastic”, also making the first four-handed book where photography meets the illustration entitled “Middle Art-Book”. I am also a radio speaker at Radio Gente Umbra, I am responsible for the magazine Umbra Chiaroscuro and in the spare time, in the early morning for more, a runner.
