About me
I am a filmmaker and set designer. My act is driven by an obsessive research for fragmented, unspoken and moving narratives.

Such “quest for conflict” is often situated within human body contours/ volumes/ gestures/ limitations, where space and matter are constantly involved aiming to contain/ extend/ influence/ disassemble.
  • TALE of LOVE (trailer)
    TALE of LOVE (trailer)In collaboration with Siciliano Contemporary Ballet, Tale of Love is an allegory of toxic love. On a transcendental level, the film grasps the psychological violence within an unstable and unbalanced love story. It's like a recurring dream. Trapped souls, poised between attraction and repulsion, unrequited obsessions and self-defence mechanisms. Tale of Love is the struggle between opposite but complementary forces. Characters never meet, yet they continue to relate to each other. T A L E o f
    FLESH ARTIFACTSWhat if humans would be able to smell, hear and see the world with other parts of their bodies ? Through the experimental multiplication of sensory organs in unusual body areas such as limbs and spine, this project investigates alternative ways of functioning and communication between humans.

In a progressively technological world, senses are amplified so one doesn’t forget to physically
  • BIANCA D’AMORE (trailer)
    BIANCA D’AMORE (trailer)Bianca d’Amore drives inspiration by a Giorgio Caproni’s poem about a small town in the south of Italy named “Martina Franca”. Bianca maybe is a real woman but we will never know,. She stands like a modern caryatid floating fast from a scene to another. The short movie doesn't have a real plot but it speaks to the public through the power of images in a mysterious way, not trying to lead anywhere but letting the emotions arise from the sounds and scents in a synesthetic experience. A symbolic an

  • Of-Labour Systems
    Of-Labour SystemsOf-Labour Systems is a fictional narrative—albeit one that is merely a slight exaggeration of the spaces and cultures of work and fitness already present today, which value our voluntary exhaustion as a precious commodity. Eve, a young, eager millennial worker, is subject to a routine for better physicality in the context of a contemporary co-working space. The installation uses speculative objects, technologies, and social structures to explore the physical and ethical boundaries of fitness cu
