In my works, my aim is that of conveying the aura of an object that is thousands of years old, yet relates to the times we live in. I have carried out research relative to the study of historical elements that remain constant in time and have explored the potential that objects from the past have of evoking sensations, memories and the consequent impact they have on us. I believe that objects ‘belonging’ to history are part of our formative experience, representing our cultural DNA.

My main inspiration comes from architecture, ancient repertoires and ruins in Rome, where I live and work. I have been breathing-in this atmosphere every day since I was born and consequently this is expressed in what I make.

I like to allow the materials I use to become “compromised” during the making process, resulting in a metal surface that often appears to be cracked, jagged, corroded or worn.
