He studies the Book of Arts by Cennino Cennini and the Treatise on Painting by Leonardo, important texts that let him acquire the basic notions about the antique pictorial techniques.
He begun to show his works in 2003 in important Italian galleries and in the same year takes part to the major art fairs.
