About the Artist:

I was born in Italy from an Italian father and an american mother. I grew up and studied in Florence. At the age of 19 I went to University in Sonoma, CA. A few months later I ended up in UCSF hospital with a leukemia. I spent two years in San Francisco getting cured. During this period my dear friend and great Photographer Macduff Everton introduced me to photography. This kept me busy when I was feeling well enough during my treatment. Now I am living again in Italy and am studying photography at my University in Florence.
