Life and career
Born in Florence, Italy, his passion for photography started very young while helping his father in the darkroom to process the black and white films that the latter took.
He then decided to study photography.
His career began in the early 90s, initially focusing on still-life photography.
However, he soon developed an interest in the fashion industry in a time in which fashion and all related fields were blossoming.
He started working for different fashion magazines including: Cosmopolitan, Harper's Bazaar and Vogue, also collaborating with worldwide famous brands such as Gucci, Ferragamo, Valentino, Prada and Dolce&Gabbana.
During these years he travels a lot from Florence to Milan due to his work commitments and eventually decides to settle down in Milan.
In 1999 he started working on the “Gucci Historical Archive” project, an archive that collects the iconic pictures of the famous maison from its early start in the city of Florence to the global top-selling Italian brand that it is today. A 20-year long collaboration with Gucci throughout photography, videos and many projects.
The project will definitely lead to the opening in 2011 of the Gucci Museum, a 1715 square meter exhibition space in Piazza della Signoria in Florence.
