ANIMATION, Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia, Turin, Italy,


After graduating at the Fine Arts Academy in Naples, I attended the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Turin, where I specialized in mixing traditional and experimental animation techniques to live action.

My work experiences include videoclips, shorts, TV commercials.

My video has been selected in Film Festival all around the word (Annecy Animation Film Festivam , Anima mundi festival brasil , Hiroshima animation.....) and shared in the most popular web blog (,,,, Vimeo staff picks and hundred more). Actually they have more then 6 milion of visualizations.
The Cinemateque Quebecoise screened “Videogioco” among the 50 short movie who changed the history of animation.
In 2009 the french magazine "Cahiers du cinéma" wrote about my short film "Videogioco" , in 2013 canal+ "Oeil de link" realised a reportage about my work and in 2014 "Grotesque Photobooth" selected by Saatchi & Saatchi for new directors Showcase at the Cannes international festival of Creativity .
Currently my videos are distributed by the french company "Autor de minut".
I use to work as freelance with the most creative advertising agencies and music labels in Italy ( Afterhours , Subsonica , Maratona di Roma , samsung , Agis , Banca della memoria )
