I was born in Rome, where I currently work as an illustrator. I’ve started my education in the field of product design and later graduated at the Urbino Higher Institute for Artistic Industries.
Here, with some of my colleagues, I’ve founded the self-published magazine PELO.
Then, in 2015, I’ve created the Tothem Tour, a travelling printing project whose goal is to take xylographic engravings and prints outside the walls of art laboratories and into the city squares, through live performances. Each time a new image is designed, depending on where the event is being held.
As of now, the project has not only covered around 15 stops all over Italy, starting from the Alps and arriving to Lucania, but also exhibited some of its designs in Rome’s art galleries.
I’ve realized for RomaID this illustration of Termini, representing it with an embrace, a way to bid farewell, but also goodbye or welcome back after a long journey. To do it I transformed the tower-tank, the building that dominates the railway tracks with its height, into this warm gesture of welcome.
I deeply respect RomaID’s project, which tries to offer its audience a cultural product, based on a solid research and an innovative reinterpretation of Rome, quite distant from the traditional idea of merchandising. I also do respect the time and effort they put into choosing the illustrators, as well as their desire to offer a collection which differs greatly in its taste, without focusing on a particular art style.
