MA in semiotic of Cinema at Pisa University, he works as an autonomous visual artist.
His research as videomaker consists of a minimal and epigrammatic experimental re-use of audio visual found objects.
Interested in a critical 'detournement' of rough materials from the "mediascape" he focuses his attention on ordinary anonymous images as well as on fragments from cinematographic history.
His work of de-construction of narrative devices, and re contextualization of visual elements, aims to disorient and estrange the viewer playing a game between memory and formation of new meanings.
In the last years he directed:
Private Eye / I, 2007
Hall of mirrors, 2008
Vanishing Point, 2009
Goodbye Mrs. Ant, 2010
Frammenti, 2011- ongoing
Study for interior with figures and sounds, 2013
His work has been shown in several international festival and exhibitions.
