I was born in Roncofreddo, a small town in the Romagna hills, and I still reside here.
I studied in Bologna graduating in Geophysics.
After a professional course in lighting technology at the Teatro Regio in Parma in 1987 I started the activity of lighting technician and operator at the console. In the following years I had the opportunity to be an assistant to esteemed professionals such as Sergio Rossi, Guido Levi, Giuseppe di Iorio and AJ Weissbard.
After years of behind the scenes experience and personal studies, in 2002 I had the opportunity to sign my first lighting design for “La Traviata” under the direction of Franco Zeffirelli.
Later I collaborated with the directors Andrea Cigni, Jacopo Spirei, Roberto Catalano, Silvia Paoli, Arnoud Bernard, Pierfrancesco Maestrini, Italo Nunziata, Fabio Ceresa, Aleksandr Sokurov, Giorgio Albertazzi, Stefania Bonfadelli, Carmelo Rifici, Leonardo Lidi, Alan Alpenfeld, Lorenzo Amato and others.
I held the courses of “theatrical lighting” at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna from 2007 to 2017.
For over 10 years I have been taking care of the lighting of the installations of the annual exhibitions of the Museums of San Domenico di Forlì.
