With a background in physics, epistemology and visual art (PhD, MFA), I am the founder and director of the Pianpicollo Selvatico Foundation, a rural research center, working at the boundary between art, deep ecology and interspecies coexistence. I share my home and research with the land of Pianpicollo, inhabited by a vast community of living and non living beings. In my work, I use photography, writing and dialogue as ways to nurture and share presence as a state of being. Since 2017, I curate the annual program Pianpicollo Research Residency, where artists and other researchers work together at the root of their research, collaborating with the human and nonhuman community of Pianpicollo. Since 2020, I coordinate the partnership of Pianpicollo with the Italian National Research Council, within the project BRIDGES, a collective reflection on the ethics of research through shared practices of encounter with soil.  For my approach to photography see the artist statement below.
