In March 2014 I graduated in sculpture (Prof. Davide Rivalta) at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna with the thesis written: "Art and ecology. Between the sunset of the West and the Catastrophe. "And the interactive artistic work" Ecotopia of art ".

My artistic research is focused on the concept of time, on the rituality of the artistic gesture, and the representation of energy and noise. It fascinates me very much to have an almost "alchemical" relationship with the artistic material, whatever it is. I create abstract or figurative forms that have condensed these characteristics and are a synthesis of natural and artificial, through sculpture, painting and other expressive means.
I consider myself a multi-faceted personality who constantly like to experiment and seek new means, and new models to express themselves. Experimentation is for me an important daily practice necessary for my artistic practice. Lately I'm trying to take a difficult path that winds between traditional Japanese art, romantic Nordic feeling (the culture of northern Europe), and contemporaneity.
I am also very interested in the relationship between literature, poetry and visual arts, as I believe they are complementary fields of expression.
