Specialities & interests
Since 2003, I am engaged in researching the migration phenomenon through photography moving me constantly into diverse situations in Italy, Germany, Mexico and China. It has been in 2008 when I decided to focus my artistic research on issues that are tight related to my own personal experiences in a process of construction and definition of the socio-cultural identity. As result of a mixed marriage -my mother is a native Ladin, a minority ethnic group of the Italian Alps, and my father was from South Italy-, in South Tyrol, Italy, a recently reconfigured multicultural borderland that is also in a continuous construction of its own identity. I am attempting to understand this complex process of identity construction in a way that has become the only feasible one for me to do so: by doing photography.
