Born in Empoli in 1954, in 1979 he won the Premio Lubiam (Mantova) awarded to the best student of the Academies of Fine Arts in Italy.
After the first two expositions in Galleria Vivita of Florence (1985, 1987) he moved for a few years to Australia and to the United States. He exhibited his works in Sydney (1989 Brown Street Gallery) and Chicago (1996 and 1997 Thomas Monahan Fine Arts).
As he comes back to Italy begins his interest for those themes that today are his favorite, the series of stock exchange and libraries, and he exposes at the gallery in Florence La Corte Contemporary Art (2008) and the Library Seeber (2000), one of the subject of many of his paintings.
