About me

I'm a member of Fotocineclub 3C Cascina since 1974.

Photographer since 1972, I have always been fond of naturalistic photographs.

In statistics FIAF since 1974, with about 1200 admissiond in competitions.

About 300 international competitions with several won awards in Italy photographic competitions.

Participation as a jury member in several competitions in Cascina, Florence, Figline Valdarno, Bibbiena, Vinci, Sinalunga, Arezzo and Pontedera.

Own professional exhibitions in many Italian locations, in particular in Pisa in 2009 on the exhibition entitled "Licheni"; and the exhibition hall at the shopping center near Pisa entitled "Che bella la brutta stagione" (How wonderful is the bad season), visited by thousands of people.

In December 2009 I took part as a guest in the exhibition "De Natura" in Bibbiena. Own exhibition in Leghorn in May 2010 and in Terranuova Bracciolini in earlu December 2010.

Gold medal award with the Italian team in India in 1980 CS and a silver medal in 1995 in the Biennale Nature in Belgium.

Many Italian photography magazines have published pictures of mine and also many European magazines thanks to the european award "I Giovani" (The Young people) where after the Italian team I received the 2nd award. I have been present for many years in the Yearbook FIAF.

Articles and interviews on “Fotoamatore” ,(now “Fotohit”), “Fotografare” and “Reflexand recently a presentation in the yearbook of the city of Pontedera.
I have illustrated several books as an author of images and photographic research, and among those:”
Il cane da tartufo” (The truffle dog),”Storia del Castello di Lari (History of Lari's Castle)”, “Cascina”,”Cento anni di fotografia ed un po' di storia di Lavaiano” (One hundred years of photography and a bit of Lavaiano's history), “Buti”,”Montefoscoli”,”Io stò con i funghi” etc.

For several years I have devoted myself to teach photography to young people and old ones in different places in Tuscany, and in particular at the "University of the Third Age" of Pisa and Pontedera and basic photography courses in several groups in the area.
Furthermore among the several awards, I would like to mention the one given by the Florence Photoclub in 2005, Una vita per la fotografia” (A life for photography).

After renouncing to analogic photography, in 2005 I left my Contax to start working with Canon digital cameras trying to learn as much as I could about editing software. Since 2006 I work on my personal site where one can find my biographical section and “Il Giovedì” (The Thursdays) where I illustrate and tell my “adventures” and those of my group of friends. Now with a little bit of time, after 40 years of work in hospital, I am very fond of trekking around the most beautiful hills and valleys in Tuscany and other countries abroad to keep on taking pictures.
