I was born and live in one of the most beautiful regions of the world: Tuscany. I often wonder if this was the reason why I started painting as a child.
Being surrounded by such beauty has probably influenced my way of looking at reality, at nature especially.

Nature surrounding us often reflects our moods, our emotions and thoughts. How many times have we looked up at the sky, observed a tree, watched the ceaseless motion of the sea and felt that image was the perfect mirror of life within us?
Representing nature, I investigate the formal issues of abstract forms, space, perspective, composition, surface, color harmonies, light and shadow, in the attempt to evoke an emotional feeling.
