I am a professional freelance fine arts painter with over 30 years experience ,specializing in Trompe l'Oeil, interior murals mostly landscapes and cities scenery for public places and private home.
I born in Forli city located in the region of Emilia Romagna founded by ancient roman empire (Forum Livi ),famous for be the area where filmmaker Federico Fellini born and raised ; region where the oldest university of Europe was founded in Bologna.

After few years of local galleries exhibitions I decided to go to US where I started a long fine art mural professional freelance activity before in Washington D.C. area,then New York. Beside my own activity I've also worked under direction of architects and Interior Designers.After professional experience in US, I came back to Italy where I'm continuing my painting activity focused on artworks in various dimension, in acrylic,oil , pastel and ink; but also mural painting for public and private home.At the moment I'm doing an exhibition of canvases at local restaurant named Luis at Collinello di Bertinoro (FC); exhibition will last til the end of July 2018. My cover painting picture on my Saatchi profile depicting New York is the biggest artwork displayed there : 180 cm x 340, made by acrylic on canvas along with smaller canvases.
