• I am art director of Emotions to Generate Change

"I was born in the mountains, in the Dolomites. I was 7 years old when I crossed the Sahara for the first time with my family and a Westphalia. Since then, I have had the desire to get to know people from all over the world, to create new ties, collaborations and projects to improve people's lives. A degree in Modern Languages was a must, and then I moved to the world of cinema. I have directed more than 50 documentaries around the world, receiving over 100 awards. I am art director of photo exhibitions that arouse emotions to generate change.
