After his years of compulsory education in Italy when he learned watercolour, screen printing and embossing techniques he chose to further his technical training and experimentation with materials in Switzerland. He takes as his creative materials the objects he finds in woods and in riverbeds. Since 1974 he has collaborated with Vincenzo Sponga and together, in 1986, they opened a shop/workshop in Pordenone, Italy.
