Interior of an hotel located in Ferrara, Italy.The phantastic shapes of this spiral staircase are enriched by the colours blue and yellow, which increase its strong visual impact.

Graduated in languages, I worked several years as translator/employee and started photographing just to keep memory of my travels abroad. I started photographing in digital about 5 years ago and now my favorite photographic genres are architecture, street, minimalism and naturalistic photography. About 4 years ago I started exhibiting my photographs in several collective exhibitions in Italy and abroad. One of my last collective exhibitions was in a gallery in Rue de Seine in Paris (Galerie Etienne de Causans) during the Paris PhotoAward 2019 and my photo was sold to a Parisian collectionist.
