Born in Ortygia, Syracuse, in 1959, he has then trained in Milan. After having attended the art school, a series of work experiences begin, coinciding with his eclectic vocation, an expressive restlessness alternating creativity addressed to applied arts and devotion to writing. all experiences which, since 1996, have been merging into a completely absorbing artistic adventure. That year, in order to experience creativity actually free from any form of influence and dependency, he leaves Milan to retire for three years in the land and sea of his origins. There, in the south, inside Etna’s lava woods and in front of the mythological sea of Stromboli, he worked on the artistic project “Mediterranean altars: The pilgrimage of impossible lovers”, in which painting, sculpture and writing are blended. In 1999, that existential phase of a long sabbatical experience ends. In the following years, his expressive research becomes more and more dripping with an anthropological spirit and specifically oriented towards the Mediterranean subject. His work is quoted in the volume “Arte e cultura del Mediterraneo nel XX Secolo” [Art and culture of the Mediterranean in the 20th century] edited by Unesco in 2004.
