He graduated at the Accademia Belle Arti of Carrara and worked then in various institutional art studios in Pietrasanta where he mastered his techniques of carving marble, especially monumental pieces and eventually created his own studio to make his own pieces. His sculptures are now part of public and private collections in the major cultural capital around the globe such as Paris, London, Rome, Amsterdam, Hong-Kong, Dubai… and Pietrasanta where he works and lives today.
“The World is energy, Life is energy, and so is Art.
I create sculpture to generate energy in your daily life, either in a Public Space or in your intimate space. I like to compare my works with classical music. The perception of Abstract Art is subtile. They are movements, like a sonata, a menuetto or a symphony, they are simple and complex at the same time and needs time to penetrate your mind, to get the emotions out of it. Art is an open source of energy, like a charger you have to plugin with the work and take your time to recharge, and I admit it is not the easiest thing to do today with the 2.0 generation lifestyle where everything is to @ and #insta…
My inspiration comes from the nature, life, movements and energy, observing people and animals, dancing, running, fighting and making love... it’s pure, dynamic and strong…Combining all this elements of nature into sculpture, I create a subtile balance between the positivity and the negativity, a circle of energy, so balancing the beauty of life on earth harmoniously with the massive destructive chaos and sadness of a certain part of humanity.
After all, my intention is to give a message of hope and positivity today, creating a better tomorrow.…

In our times the challenge is also represented by the great technical possibilities, which are offered to sculpture. The intuition and the initial idea can be carried on with the 3D drawing and print; to help in the further passages there are machineries and robots. It is outlined on the horizon a ‘Cyber-classicism’, where the forms of nature identify their mathematical nature in perfect and wonderful algorithms and hyperbolic paraboloids. Who will be the Polyclitus able to sculpt the “canon” of the III millennium? What is certain is that, on the following day of its creation, that perfect sculpture will entice its author to change the rules, to find new balances, to look for new ways.
