In Milan, during this Covid-19 lockdown time, balconies, terraces and roofs have become the only useful places to get our yard time. We took a walk on the roofs transformed into gyms, solariums, libraries where you can meet the words of others through books. Balconies and windows were the escape route, the holiday, the break from a monitor-shaped job.
One of the consequences of the pandemic will be to rethink the design of houses, especially as regards the common parts, in order to make cities more resilient. In Italy the debate,involving architects, physicians,sociologists, has already opened

I am a photographer who practices different genres, with a predilection for experimentation. In recent years I deepened the search on a personal language, an "intimate vision", which allowed me to go beyond the fact of real and the visible.
This is the genesis and also the meaning of my photographic research.
I received several awards in photographic competitions, including through publications, and I exhibited my works in personal and collective exhibitions.
