WHAT’S YOUR BACKGROUND? 

Ever since I can remember I’ve had a passion for art and drawing. With the passing of time this passion has been, in some aspects, contaminated by photography and fashion, understood as an expression of self. After attending the artistic high school in Genova, my city of birth, the desire to make all this my work has led me to enter the competition for scholarships at the IED in Turin. I received the call from the IED the same day I had the interview, I remember as if it was now the moment when I received the good news. And so it all began. After graduation I moved to Florence and worked as a Knitwear designer for a year and a half at Ermanno Scervino, then I moved to Milan to Philosophy by Lorenzo Serafini and here I worked as a fashion/ celebrity designer. In these two past experiences, I have always had the task of illustrating and creating the guache that made up the collections, given my predisposition for drawing. Even at Ermenegildo Zegna, the brand I currently work for, these tasks, previously only secondary, have become my main task. At the same time I continue to draw every day trying to improve and perfect my style and always trying to make it a little more personal.

WHAT DO YOU GET INSPIRED TO CREATE YOUR ILLUSTRATIONS? 

Very difficult question… I often go to periods, but what is certain is that I let myself be influenced mainly by environmental problems, situations that characterize social life and the psyche.

Specifically the aspects that compose it, or at least those that I compose my own: such as the sense of incompleteness and the presence of the various personalities enclosed in a single individual, those facets that express opposite sensations and that every day make space within us in an irrational way. Another fundamental aspect in the subjects I represent is therefore the surreal component: both from a purely aesthetic point of view and as a thought, guided by the unconscious and true expression of one’s own reality as it is not guided by reason.
