I use to sleep until 9.30am, but yesterday I had a shooting at 8am at Fontana di Trevi to create a new artwork from my series Urban Melodies (for a beautiful family that asked me to be in one of the layers in the final image). I had the chance to discover once again my city under a different light, I went there with my bicycle and Roma was absolutely stunning under the early morning light, I didn’t remember how beautiful it could be with less tourists, less noise, less chaos. It was really nice, even if I was a zombie for the rest of the day! Here some street photos I took after the shooting.Continue reading

25 April 2023
This is the most important and beautiful day of the year, to me. It’s the day when Italy celebrates the liberation from nazifascism, so you can guess how great this day is. Yesteday my neighborhood was full of flags, colors and people. I took some photos, of course and here is a selection. First of all, the 25th of April through my multiple exposures: “Liberation leading the People”.Continue reading
Napoli, 25 March 2023
Last saturday I went to Napoli to eat a pizza (well, a couple, actually) and take some photos of the city, that is going to celebrate the third Scudetto of its football team. Napoli is one of the best city in Italy for Street Photography, its vibes and its carousel of characters is really something great. Here some photos I took during my walk.Continue reading
14-15 March 2023
Two days ago, as I saw this guy smoking on a bench, I approached him without being noticed and I took some photos of his “fog”. I like to act as a ninja when I do street photography (first photo)! Yesterday I took a bus and there was a nice situation for street (third photo), then I was at that “yellow” corner and I thought that it was a good point to wait for the right person to walk in the frame. I was lucky because just a moment after arrived a guy with a balloon in the hand (last photo)!
This was my photoweeek, more or less. How was yours?Continue reading

Saturday morning I was drinking a coffee in my apartment when I suddenly heard drums and whistles fill the silence. They came from the street, so I went to my window and I saw a parade, there was lot of people walking and dancing. So I dress with the first thing I found and I ran downstairs to take part of the parade and take some pictures too. It was the 14th edition of the Anti-racist Carnival of Garbatella, my neighborhood. It was really fun. Here a selection of images I took:Continue reading

A nice walk in the afternoon to enjoy the sun and take some pictures. I love the first image, a couple on Ponte Sisto, and it would be nice to find them to give them this photo as a gift. It really would be nice. The second photo made me think a lot. When I was a teenager I used to do stupid jokes with my friends, talking a lot about nonsenses. I enjoyed their company. In this photo everyone of this classroom is watching at his/her smartphone. What happened? I don’t want to judge, it’s just a consideration about our times. What do you think?Continue reading
Chinese New Year
Yesterday I went in the Roman Chinatown, the Esquilino neighborhood, to watch how the Chinese community (and Romans too) celebrated the Chinese New Year, the year of the rabbit. It was the perfect situation to take some pictures and ask a girl for a portrait. This kind of event are really great for street photography, there is a lot of people and a lot of story to tell through photography. There was a kid peeping behind the curtain a show on the stage, I loved that. Here a gallery of image I took yesterday during the celebrations of Chinese New Year.Continue reading

A beautiful walk to the Musei Capitolini is always a good way to discover, once again, the beautiful art of Romans and the stunning past of my city. Sometimes I forget to live in a city like Rome, in such a incredible place, so it’s important to remind me, through museums and walks, how beautiful can be, despite the difficulties, costs etc.
My Best Street Photos of 2022
This year is almost gone. I don’t want to write a post about my 2022, it would be too self-centred and boring. By the way, it’s been a year full of different things, good and bad, as happens to everybody, I guess. But let’s talk about photography. I tried to select the best street photos I took during this year, since the midnight of the 1 January until now (well, 2022 is not over and maybe I could take some good photos today or tomorrow, but I don’t think so…). Just pure street photos, no Raindrop Blues nor Urban Melodies. I chose the photos according to my personal taste, so I’m not really sure about my selection, I’m not a great editor of myself. But it’s ok, here is the gallery and I hope you will enjoy it!
I wish you the best for 2023 and I hope you can achieve all your good resolutions. See you next year and thanks for being here.Continue reading

I went to a press screening and as soon as I entered in the theater I knew that I had to take this photo. I like the feeling of mistery that permeate the image. I can’t understand if the second blond head on the left bothers me or not. But maybe it could be seen as a doppelganger of the head in the middle of the image.
