LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
I live in Rome where I graduated in Architecture at University of Rome “La Sapienza”, then I attendend the School of Restoration of Historical Building and got the PhD in Conservation of Architectural Heritage at University of Rome “La Sapienza”.
I have been working as architect since 1993 and got many experiences in the field of interior design, architecture, new constructions, restorations, building renewals, urbanistic, etc..
Drawing has always been my natural means of expression, through which I carry out my daily professional practice, in addiction of being the mean for my activity as a painter.
In fact, painting and photography are complementary activities to my profession as architect, activities that I have refined over the years - and keep refine - as a self-taught.
Painting, in accordance with my professional activity and with my specific background, is expressed through an approach towards reality that does not lead to strictly figurative outcomes but rather from reality takes its cue to be transformed afterwards through an extreme process of rarefaction and sublimation of forms.
My painting thus arrives at works where memory and reality are transfigured into a basic, rigorous, naked and simple material characterized by "fields" of color, lines and a few pure forms.
Over the years I have approached various techniques including fresco, tempera, oil, with a preference for mixed media where the pictorial training process is free and more immediate.
WHO I AM
Architect with passion for painting and photography.
