The inspiration for the series arose from the conditions in which Italy - the country where I was born - now finds itself. The balance of powers in the world is changing very rapidly and our beautiful country is increasingly assailed by economic problems; it has to deal with migratory waves and the ever-increasingly demanding and inflexible EU. Now, more that ever, we need to return to those fundamental values that made our “Piccola Italia” a pride in the eyes of the world, with its values that stem from centuries-old traditions, its creative genius and the ability to overcome all obstacles.

I'm a freelance photographer based in Tuscany but working all round Italy. I have approached professional photography only in recent years and I travel all around Italy for my projects. Every shooting session is an opportunity to grow both as a photographer and as a person. I use to participate to international photocontests and I already had a lot of nominations and awards. I want to give my portraits a deep and knowable meaning "asking" my images to spread energy and emotions and sometimes denouncing what I see happening to our world.
