Do not give in too much to feelings. A overly sensitive heart is an unhappy possession on this shaky earth.

—Johann Wolfgang von Goethe



Are you vegetarian/would you like to be vegetarian? 

No, I am not a vegeterian and I don’t think I will ever be one.  My dad is a chef so I love good food and I eat almost everything.

Did you study photography in school?

Yes, I did. I just gratuated at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan. I studied there for 3 years and, thanks to a scholarship, I had the pleasure of attending a semester at the School of Visual Arts in New York in 2012.

A picture that you would love to take.

I have several ideas for my new project and i’m planning to take more couples-portraits and self-portraits.

Do you sell your prints online? Why?

I do not sell my photographs online. Maybe one day!

Have you ever attended photographic workshops?

No I have not. When I was in high school I attended some evening photography courses.

Do you like looking at your old pictures?

Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t but I always look at my archive because it is a way for me to understand myself and my work. 

Do you have prints of your works hung on your walls?

I do. I have some small prints I made at the School of Visual Arts and three photographs of my last project “Holes”.

What social networks are you using? Are they working for your career?

I use mostly Tumblr and Facebook.  I don’t think they are indispensable for my career, but they are helpful in promoting my work.

Do you believe in horoscopes?

I find it amusing when I find coincidences, but I can’t say I believe in horoscopes.

A picture that is very important for you.

“Couple in bed, Chicago, 1977” by Nan Goldin.  For some strange reason sometimes I see myself in that picture.

Your comfy food.

I’m really into Italian and Japanese food, but if I have to choose one I will go with my italian cooking, mainly for the cheese.

Are you currently planning any trip?

I’m always planning trips! I am pretty sure I am moving to the USA in September, but I haven’t decide yet if I am going to move to NYC or to somewhere on the west coast.

The photographer you would like to spend time working with.

There are many photographers I would like to work with. I am so curious to spend some time with Nan Goldin, but I don’t know if I could say I’d love to work with her. I’d really love to work with Todd Hido, Alec Soth and Craigie Horsfield.

What is the best photographic book you have seen and why.

“Between the two” by Todd Hido. I love its minimality. The photographs are magnificent, well printed, and I think the size of the book is appropriate for the type of work it is.
