I was born in the Republic of San Marino in 1983, I am a Sammarinese and Italian citizen.

After the  Sculpture degree at the Academy of Fine Arts in Ravenna in 2008, I moved to Carrara where I attempted the leaving certificate of stonecutter at Professional Marble Institute "Pietro Tacca".

I started working on marble when no basic artisan jobs were available, so I learned to carve on my own art, learning near different sculptors from all over the word. Because of this first large influence, I research a universal language, shaping memories of the ancient female archetype and mixing figures as the spiral of geometrical symbols, always in a deep communication and exchange with the material that I carve .

As an artisan, when I work directly for the persons I design and realize all the projects, communicating and giving freedom to the committee.  

 

Until 2018  I will be working, both as an artisan and as an artist, on an important private commission of a series of monumental high reliefs in sandstone of 1,25 x 2,25  cm , based on the history of the Republic of San Marino, that will be placed in the center of its capital.

In the meantime I participate to important exhibitions, sculpture symposiums and ice carving shows.
