Born in Cittiglio in the Province of Varese in 1978, I inherited my passion for art from my father, a technical designer and in particular from my mother, an artist and ceramist. Naturally, I chose to go to art school and after that I specialised at The “Aldo Galli” Academy of Fine Arts of Painting and Restoration in Como. It was right there in the Academy that I received my first recognition for painting.

During that time, I also successfully worked for ten years on restoration sites that allowed me to improve my skills and study in depth the ancient techniques of the great masters.

In 2009 life takes me to Alassio (SV) where the intense light of the Ligurian Riviera fascinated me to such an extent that it became a fundamental element of my painting. Since 2010 I have expanded my work experience in the art world opening my gallery of contemporary art, Rodari Art Gallery, overlooking the Gulf of Alassio where not only my vast artwork is on display but also that of great artists like Roberto Comelli.

In addition to painting, I occasionally do restoration work of frescoes and canvases.

Liceo Artistico Angelo Frattini of Varese – Artistic  section, four years plus one supplementary year.

The Academy of Fine Arts Aldo Galli of Como, learning painting and restoration, four years plus thesis; recommendation with a plaque for a contest held within the Academy.
