issue #29: remote summer
1. If you had to select some photographs to paste into your summer diary, called “Remote summer”, what would they be? Thinking back to when you took them, what struck you?
Definitely one in particular: of the two boys sitting on the edge of a cliff facing the sea. They were two boys traveling in their camper van, and when I snapped them, I saw that they were meditating before their meal, they immediately conveyed to me a purity I had never felt.
2. If you were now in that precise situation, and you had to send a postcard, to whom would you send it? What message would you write?
I think I would send it to my parents, thanking them for always supporting and sustaining me throughout my paths.
3. What is an object you would never part with (apart from your camera)? What emotions does it arouse in you?
Most likely my musical instruments… Because, somewhat like my camera, they are means that allow me to express myself, arousing strong emotions in myself and others.

It was through it that he started shooting. He attended a photography academy in Milan, which allowed him to study with great authors and professionals.
