THE STORY

My love for mosaics wan't one at first sight, but one that was born from study.
I received my diploma in 1999 at the Art Institue Castrovillari, near Cosenza in Calabria as a Maestro of fabric applied arts. In 2001 I opened my artistic serigraphy studio, in 2004 I finally discovered the world of mosaics. I was so captivated by the idea of using tiny pieces to create one big masterpiece I decided to give up my work on fabrics and immerse myself in the world of mosaics.
Now I work in my study, creating pieces on request and using different techniques from the oldest to the newest modus operandi. I usually use stone in my pieces, choosing exactly which type depending on the piece. The work I do is thought out and completed: from the choice of instruments to the materials I use.
In 2014 I participated in the Fuorisalone in Milano with my piece "Foulard" and it was one of the most important experiences for my work: I presented a three dimensional piece made of marble, one of the heaviest materials, and made it appear weightless.
I always believed in sharing my ideas, my mission is to create the perfect mix between technique and culture, keeping myself always up to date, and then to be able to share my knowledge with others who share my passion.
Making mosaics fills me with joy and I try to give joy to others though my art.
