Articles for Persinsala
Those articles are all part of my ongoing collaboration with the online cultural magazine Persinsala.
I regularly write articles about the latest exhibitions, cultural events, shows and theatrical performances. That includes always being present in vernissages and press previews, interviewing artists, curators, directors and many other figures in the artistic field. I am always up-to-date with the latest exhibits and everything that's currently happening on the cultural scene in Rome. My research mostly focuses on figurative arts, new media, theatre and cinema.

Articles for Chartreux
Those articles are part of my personal project Chartreux (2019), a cultural diary where I talk about exhibitions, testimonies and connections created on the urban territory of Rome.
Chartreux combines blogging and art criticism: the distinctive aspect of the project is the direct approach and the one-to-one relationship with artists and gallerists. These articles are also a direct account of the Roman art scene before the 2020 pandemic.

New-media research and sociology and media-based contemporary art are my primary fields of work. Most of those are term papers I wrote during my bachelor's degree in Communication and Valorisation of the Contemporary Artistic Heritage at the Academy of Fine Arts of Rome.

Cultural Heritage Photography
This extract is part of a project I realized in the Cultural Heritage Photography course held by photographer Andrea Attardi. My primary goals was to represent the icons of St. Peter's Basilica without being didascalic or repetitive. I focused on rays of light, lines and geometries to tell the story of this incredible place of devotion.
All pictures have been taken with a Nikon D3200.
Personal Artistic Research
Rope Knots, City Lights (2019) is part of my personal aesthetic and artistic research. The main theme of the tryptic is the role played by individuals relating to new metropolis and big cities. While this is certainly a reflection on rapid urbanisation and its conseguences, the introspective research also investigates solitude and how is possible to feel and be completely alone in such crowded spaces - concept also expressed by the shatteredness of the image.
