I graduated in Visual Semiotics, a course run by author and semiologist Umberto Eco, at the University of Bologna. My thesis concerned the body of work created by Maurizio Cattelan explored through the prism of Roland Barthes' theories.
My professional experience started in 2011. Now my work takes me throughout Europe. My passion for theatre and my breadth of experience has given me the opportunity to photograph the shows not only of renowned international artists, Bob Wilson, Jan Fabre, Sasha Waltz, Oskaras Korsunovas, Pippo Delbono, Emma Dante, Motus, but also others who are at the start of their careers.
My ongoing collaboration with Romeo Castellucci and Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio began in 2011 with On the Concept of the Face, Regarding the Son of God.
Since 2013, I have been documenting the annual Spill Festival of Performance for The Pacitti Company in the United Kingdom, in addition to other festivals in Italy.
In 2018 I was invited by the director Antonio Latella to teach the Masterclass of photography at the Venice Biennale.
My creative practice reflects my interest in how imagery tells stories, be that through portraiture or the documentation of events and exhibitions. It is the field of performing arts, however, that I find most expressive in my search for a heightened iconic. Theatre is a very powerful form because it is very close to real life, and its representation of the symbolic provides the framework for my personal space in questioning meaning.
