Biography

I am was born in 1985, I am Italian and I am a freelance independent photographer. My interests span from underreported social issues and conflicts. 
In 2010, I graduated from the London College of Communication’s Journalism department.
After three years studying and practicing written and radio journalism I moved to photojournalism and documentary photography.  I obtained a Master in Photojournalism from the Higher Institute of Photography and Integrated Communications (ISFCI) in Rome.
In the last years, I lived in London, Rome and Paris – and worked in and reported from Ukraine, Democratic Republic of Congo, Italy, the Balkans, Eastern China, Cambodia, Vietnam, Mexico and Egypt.

I speak Italian English French fluently and Spanish (not bad).
