I was born in 1965 in Arezzo, Tuscany, Italy and grew up in the same place. Since I was young, I have fallen in love with the unique landscapes of my land.
In Tuscany, the light paints the rolling hills with ever new colors at dawn and dusk. It creates long shadows and breathtaking shapes.
Wandering around, you can come across solitary cypress trees that stand ancient at the top of the hill. Or, like soldiers, stand out on the horizon in perfect rows, sinuous and silent. Roads will lead you to remote farmhouses and picturesque medieval villages so perfect that they seem painted.
At any time of the year, the colors reign supreme here. The hills are painted in a thousand different shades. The cheerful red of the poppies and the bright yellow of the sunflowers, the intense ocher of the vineyards and the magical green of the olive groves.
It’s impossible not to be inspired by such beauty and variety. I have taken many photographs for nature and travel magazines. My work has been exhibited in museums and castles in Tuscany. I’ve published photography books and made fine art prints.
Photography has been my job, but above all my passion for almost 40 years. I still manage to be amazed at how much beauty nature offers us.
Tuscany is also a region rich in history and architectural beauty. Some of its cities are unique and famous throughout the world such as Florence, Pisa, and Siena, to name a few. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to immortalize them in all their magnificence.
In Tuscany you will also find a crystal clear sea that moves incessantly and furiously on stormy days, offering the opportunity for truly evocative shots.
Although Tuscany will always remain my first great love, I discovered the wonderful landscapes of the Dolomites in Italy. I fell in love with the mountains which turn white in winter, offering magical views. In autumn, they light up with the thousand colors of the foliage.
