Brera Academy of Fine Arts, founded in 1776 in a centuries old palace in Milan, is one of the oldest in Italy. The main courses are painting, sculpture, decoration and scenic design. Despite the cultural decline of Italyâ€™s recent history, Brera Academy is one of the few italian academic institutions that attracts foreign students, more than 25% of them come from overseas.
Iâ€™m interested in working in situations where some details are deliberately left undetermined so that the final result, usually a photo, contains a certain amount of unexpected. I think it is essential to start any project without knowing exactly what the final result may be: with this process something new and interesting is more likely to happen. I love to portrait people in slightly surreal and ironic situations, working with DIY or modified equipment, or browsing around with my scooter.
