I am inspired

to capture the essential beauty of the moment, of people, streets, landscapes, and food of the New England valley where I live, the places I visit in my travels, and Italy, my home country. I was born and raised in Bologna, but I have lived for the past 20 years in Amherst, Massachusetts – very different locales, but both lively college towns that nourish my imagination. My work reflects my love for conversing, engaging and laughing with people in their surroundings, documenting details and character while revealing contrasts and similarities.
