THE WORLD IS …OURS Lucky enough, I had the chance to roam around, studying wonderful pieces of nature. Marco Neri, Agust Gudmundsson, Tesfaye Korme, Bekele Abebe, Jim Cole, Karl Spinks, Takeyoshi Yoshida, Ryoichi Yamada, Ricardo Omarini, Roberto Mazzuoli, Luigina Vezzoli, Alessandro Tibaldi, Andrei Kozhurin, Vera Ponomareva, are just some of the friends who enthusiastically shared with me weeks of field work, opening my mind. more …
PERSONAL For the first time in the history of mankind, our generations can roam around the globe. From Roma to Pagan, from Puna to Kyoto, from the Kasbahs to Angkor-Wat, from Tongariro to Esfahan, from Alchi to Cerro Torre, from Hong Kong to Askja, from Van to Dunhuang, from Bali to Bay Area, from Registan to Petra, from Sydney to Taj Mahal, from Lhasa to Fakarawa, from Matamanoa to Atacama…Feeling the breath of Earth, so that the Earth becomes the throne. Now that it is time to feel the breath of my daughters, I wish Flavia and Elena to have the same chance as I had.
