After having studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna, he became a teacher of painting at the D. Dossi Art Institute, Ferrara.
From the 1980s, alongside his drawings and prints, he has been making ceramics, with solo and group shows in Italy and abroad.
His works in clay are a tribute to ancient objects and their history, but at the same time they are given new life with new content: secret words and secret glances, affectionate flights, nests in the forests, heads that are villages, suns and clouds over earthy roofs, enchanted women, fabulous saucepans, imaginary towns.
Queens ruling over burrows and roots, custodians of nocturnal skies, animals watching silently, stoves that are as warm as memories, pebbles that become courtyards. Tread the paths, climb the steps and enter their tiny doors.
