I was born near Pisa on September 24th 1987. After graduating at the Academy of Fine Arts of Florence, I took part in many festivals as a scenographer and photographer. In 2010 I attended the Bologna Children’s Book Fair for the first time and fell in love with children’s books! I decided to study Illustration and Entertainment Design at NEMO Academy of Digital Arts. Since then,I have worked as an illustrator for publishers and as a painter and decorator for Dolce &amp;amp; Gabbana. I currently live in Florence where I work, play the guitar and actively help animals as a volunteer.
