Seven projects I’m currently working on. From my statement: “I have no preclusions of techniques or materials, nor of topics to be addressed, but I do care about death, sex, the media environment we live in. I like to combine the sacred and the profane, the archaic with secular scenarios.”show more →
I came to art only in my late 30s after a long period of studies at a PhD level and work experiences in different fields. I have not attended any art academies or art schools, I have learned (and keep learning) everything by doing. I consider myself a “multidisciplinary artist” (or rather: conceptual?) in the sense that I don’t have a privileged medium. In my work I start from an intuition sometimes triggered by a material or an object, something that hits my […]show more →
This is the booklet I wrote for my exhibition “Where is my sacred?” @ Fondazione Cerere december 5th – 21th 2018. «The sacred is an element of the structure of consciousness and not a moment in the history of consciousness.

« Vere tu es Deus absconditus Deus Israhel salvator. » (Indeed, you are a hidden God, you God of Israel, the Savior) – Book of Isaiah (45:15). THE THEOLOGICAL ALLEGORY During the preparational work for ALBE – A Life Beyond Earth, director Elisa Fuksas and I soon realized we were actually making a “theological film” focused on human solitude and documenting not only the misadventures of a group of people in the province of Rome in search of the “alien”, but also showing […]show more →
BACK HISTORY The Oracular Skullptures project ideally starts in Pantelleria in 2014. By walking in a deserted part of the island between abandoned Dammusi (Sicilian traditional housing) and dry ears, I found a veil’s scapula. It hold something magical,I was so fascinated. I kept it for 2 years before realizing what to do it. One day I dreamt to lacquer/coat this piece in white and once I woke up I went to a laboratory to make my first prototype.
