Born in Milan in 1975. After graduating in International Economy at Bocconi University, I decided to change path and become a photojournalist. In recent years, hypochondria and curiosity led me around the world to work mainly on maternal and child health issues. I’ve also photographed indigenous minorities, the gangs in Central America, the journeys of His Holiness, the disabled children in northern India and the young people of the Mediterranean Sea. I have exhibited in Italy and abroad and published on national and international newspapers and magazines. In 2008 I published the book “La Mosquitia. Gracias a Dios” and in 2011 was published “MEDPEOPLE”. In the last 5 years I’ve worked on Out of Sight, a long term project on the global HIV/AIDS epidemic after thirty years (www.outofsight.info).
