I was born in Tuscany in Pietrasanta, land of poets and writers.
More than giving, I received the gift, the luck of being able to choose where to go, this is never obvious or easy.
I am passionate about everything that intrigues me, that is research, that is study, approximation.
What do you do in your life in London?
I am an entrepreneur, I founded a company, a communication company and the first official Italian radio in London and the United Kingdom. I have little time to have fun, but I like to work.
What is the reason to leave Italy and come to London?
I love the UK more than Italy, but the UK will never be in my heart as I have Italy in my heart.
What were your best and worst experiences in London.
The best experience I had in London was and it is living London my way, and how I want it every day. Worse, I hope never come.
I asked you to choose a place in London that you like or you are tied to, what was your choice and why you made it?
There are many places in London to which I am attached, because in them I have lost and rebuilt a part of me.
During your early times in London, did you have any problem?
About 20 years ago I lived in a house with 9 boys and they always stole my shopping from the fridge. I solved the problem by buying a fridge in the room.
What do you think about this project?
Although there have been many, I think it is important to photograph the story, the passage of Italians in London is always part of the cultural baggage of our country.
How do you think you could support and promote Italian culture? 
I founded an Italian radio and 15 years ago the first online magazine for Italians (Italian-European) to talk about Italy and its culture.
