I was born in Agrigento, Italy, in 1978. After graduating in Natural Sciences and after my studies in Evolutionary Anthropology, my attention turned to photography and I became a self-taught photographer. At the beginning I focused my lens on wildlife photography, later my interest also focused on photojournalism. From 2007 to 2010 I worked in Sicily for ANSA, Italian leading agency press. During that time I made several photographic works on human migrations from Africa to Italy through the Canal of Sicily. In 2011 I moved to Milan where I started working full-time as a photojournalist for AGF photographic agency, ANSA and then REUTERS, focusing my lens on news, entertainment, business, politics, society and fashion. Between 2020 and 2021 I covered for REUTERS the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic in Lombardy, the first region outside Asia affected by SARS-CoV-2 virus.
