The Monoliths were usually immense stones. Our ancestors lifted them from the ground with great difficulty, worked them and collocated in a place chosen as an indelible mark of their passage on the earth. Nowadays, monoliths can be reinterpreted by the wonders of architectural works. Increasingly complex to realize, monumental works that change the face of our cities.The images in this series want to enhance and reinterpret the architectural idea, with the use of light, with the language of black and white, and with a shot that projects them to the sky, just like the ancient monoliths

I was born in Rome on 25 June 1983. I started to taking pictures since as a child. Through the years i began to direct my passion toward photo-reportage especially in social, anthropology, and travel photography. i really like to tell with the images the traditional and spiritual aspect of different people and cultures that i meet in journey. I always use the natural light present in the place I exposed my images in in various italian city and abroad I have published my images in several newspaper and magazine in italy, and some images in Photographic Book edited by Graffiti Press Agency.
