a)My daily routine is
quite busy: I wake up, go to work, then I come back home and have a shower.
After that I cook and then eat. Then I start to work as an artist. On the
weekends I dedicate more time to my creative job.
q) Where did you grow
up/where do you live now and how does that contribute to your art?
a)I am born and grow up
in Desio, a town near Milan, in Italy. Now I am
based in Dublin,
I live here from about 2 years. I think that Italy offers a great starting point

imagination and observe my works as they desire to.
q) What do your internal
dialogues sound like?
a)My mind is full of
music: while I create I always have a song in my mind. I think that music is an
essential part of my life and inspires me a lot.
q) Do you feel that there
are limitations to what you want to create?
a)Sometimes yes, I would
love to create big pieces, but I am afraid of the results. I just need to fight
this fear maybe.
q) Do you feel art is
vital to survival and if so, why?
a)For me art is like air:
if I stop now, it’s like to fall down into a black hole.
q) Describe a world

to dream the dark city where all my nightmares are shielded.
