Traveller FilmMaker human being interested in social and environmental justice, different typologies of societies and self-sustainability.
I specialized in documenting the reality on the ground and in finding the connection between the micro and the macro issues, the local situations and the global ones.
Sometime I write too. I was born in Italy.
I do not eat animals since I was 12 years old.
In the last years I got involved with Permaculture
