Since a couple years, during April, a very cool new Photo Festival takes place in the very heart of Rome (Italy).
Organized and directed by two amazing photographers such as Stefano Mirabella and Alex Liverani, ITALIAN STREET PHOTO FESTIVAL has definitely won a place in my heart. Every day was filled with inpiring Talks, photo walks and workshop so I suggest you don’t miss out on next year edition! Among the festival judges and guests this year, Franco Fontana.

What a successful week! My photo has been selected and published by two institutions in the photography world: Vogue & National Geographic!
National Geographic even selected my work as Photo of the Week and that is for me a huge accomplishment, as considering my photographic field, I had never thought I could get their attentions.
Grateful! Long live to artistic photography.

Janurary 6th marks my first sold Photograph of 2019!
“2PM” is flying to USA (for a change) and was printed on a mesmerizing Hahnemühle FineArt Baryta 325. It’s thick and beautiful, it comes with a serialized hologram Certificate of Authenticity and fluorescent security fibres.
In other words, life is short, buy the artwork, drink the wine, order the dessert!
Each September, London hosts the most thrilling and innovative design festival in the world: over nine packed days there are events taking place right across the city.
Navigating all this activity can appear daunting at first. With over 500 events in total, there’s more than any single person could see.
Thanks to Saatchi x Samsung collaboration, I had my very own corner at this festival. Find here some snapshots and also a video
On November 16th, I attended a Vernissage held at Leica Store in Rome, nearby the Spanish Steps. The super location and a sunny city, welcomed hundreds of photography enthusiast, queueing outside the store for a very worthy reason: we had the privilege to meet a real master of Italian photography, Gianni Berengo Gardin.
He is a true living legend and his eyes, captured during the past 60 years, precoius images that literally made history. Additionally he was freshly awarded a Leica Hall of Fame awards for his outstanding contribute to Photography.
I was lucky to get a copy of his book and have it signed, they sold out shortly after. And I was even luckier to have the super talented italian street photographer Stefano Mirabella, capturing me and Berengo with his LeicaQ.
A short intro to Gianni Berengo Gardin impressive work, and last but not least, our photos together.
Two photographs of mine that I shoot in Rome, were purchased this month by two collectors. One is going to stay at a lawyer studio in Rome, and one is flying to a lawyer’s home in New York.
Thank you SIPA for this prize and for hosting such a beautiful awards ceremony in the heart of Tuscany, Siena.
