TELL US ABOUT YOU… AND A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR LIFE AND CHILDHOOD
I grew up in a big house in the suburb of a small Italian city. I never had a lot of friends to play with and I had been spending my childhood playing with my brother and all the animals of the garden: cats, dogs, ducks, chickens and rabbits. I reckon that made me always attracted and comfortable towards them.
WHAT IS THE BEST PART OF YOUR WORK?
The best part of my work is the process that I know will make my client happy and satisfied. To understand the need and the request and to grant them -with the shooting itself and then the post-production.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE BREAK?

BEST THING ABOUT BEING A DAD?
The best thing being a father is the constant feeling of the unique and unbreakable bond between me and the two persons I love most. The worst is probably the lack of time that I’ve (sometimes!) for myself.
DO YOU HAVE A FAMILY SONG / MUSIC/ RITUALS?
We actually don’t listen to music often... every night, after having read in bed, we go to bed with a song or music. For months we had “Le Sirene” by V. Capossela, then “Un Malato Di Cuore” by F. De André and now the cello suites by Bach.
WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT DAYDREAM?
My daydream is to accept better my living in Stockholm and to fall in love again.
WHAT DOES YOUR FAVOURITE PIECE OF CLOTHING SAY ABOUT YOU?
I have many wool sweaters very torn and with holes that could probably tell that I don’t like to change, that I am very forgiving towards flaws.
