If it’s up to mass media to report information and news that have an impact on society’s public opinion, the core of my research lies one step backward, or beneath: at the border between the event and the ordinary, where its roots are found. My work is fed by the passion for the moments revealing the ordinary, the paradoxical, the unexpected.
As a reporter, I’ve been focusing for past years on social and economic issues of contemporary times. I have collaborated with many Italian and international media such as L’Espresso, Sette, Le Figaro Magazine, ADAC reisemagazine, National Geographic Traveler, Riders, Studio, 11, Domus, and many others, dealing mainly with reportage both during personal projects, both during commissioned work. I worked on many editorials for the magazine IL by ilSole24Ore, regarding topics like oil pollution in Ecuador, the meat industry in Uruguay, general elections in the Amazon Forest of Peru, and the phenomenon of the new Italian Monarchy supporters. The FAI (Fondo Ambiente Italiano) campaign led me in every corner of Italy, finding the soul of those lands for the Luoghi del Cuore 10th anniversary book. For Monocle I explored many different topics for reportages, focuses on people and city guides.
I have worked as an author and director of photography Renzo Piano’s G124 project, which let me capture urban and social environments lying outside of the massive attention. Moreover, for two years I have been the curator of the project of slow-journalism Supervulcano, on the theme of coexistence between Man and volcanic risk in Campi Flegrei.
As editorial director – since Feb 2020 until Jul 2022 – I have collaborated to the launch and positioning on the media market of VD, a next-generation media and a production company focused on giving birth to extraordinary content like videos, multimedia stories and podcasts.
I founded Reversocollettivo, a collective of journalists, creatives, and researchers working for exploring beyond the boundaries of storytelling. Among the others, we created Slowmag an experimental magazine for Slow Food Milano, based on food stories.
As a lecturer, I collaborate with IED (Istituto Europeo di Design) for the classes of photojournalism and computer graphic.
Even the commercial contents I was assigned to develop for multiple brands never lose that authentic, instinctive feeling of pure editorial works. With that said, I also like to experiment and see opportunities regardless of media. With 15 years of experience, I’ve been working with projects in all media for a wide variety of clients.
