A sunny day in the ancient city of Matera, Italy, with its cave-houses called "sassi" that diesign quite a monochromatic cityscape. Matera is Unesco World Heritage since 1983 and it will be the European Capital for Culture in 2019.

I live in Potenza, where I work as a green building engineer. My attention is directed mainly to urban photography, architecture and also landscape, in which I'm always searching for traces of human presence. I often focus on spaces that can tell us something about people living and using them, also if they could appear estethically uninteresting. I have a minimalist approach to the world of photography. Simplicity for me it is a value. My works have been exhibited in Cracow (Poland), Essex Junction (USA), Florence, Trieste, Potenza and other places in Italy.
