I have always been fascinated by nature. It all started with the deep bond with the place where I grew up, Lake Como, with its beautiful landscapes framed by the mountains, and continued with my passion for sailing and hiking. But it was only in 2014, at the age of 36, that I decided to combine my interest in open spaces and animals with nature photography. Two deep passions that feed each other and that lead me to witness intense beauty. Beauty that with my images I hope to be able to convey, together with the love for Life and the great importance of protecting it in all its forms.
