I was born in 1958 in Lodi, where I still live, even though I worked in Milan. Engineer, in the energy sector, I have been married since 1985.

I took my first picture as a joke in 1970 using a Ferrania Eura. Since then, I have never stopped.

Although I’m not a professional photographer, in 1977 I started using a reflex camera (Nikon FM with three fixed lenses 18 mm, 35 mm and 135 mm), printing my black and white photos on my own, in a darkroom and, later, developing my coloured diapositives.

In 2006, I opted for a digital camera (Canon EOS 350D with optical zoom EF-S 17-85 mm).

In July 2015, I replaced the previous camera with a Canon EOS 100D, equipped with an optical zoom EF – S 18-55 mm STM.

Over the years, I have become a member of the following orders or associations.
