The tale of the disappearing vultures

As a journalist and photographer, I travel the world in search of stories to tell. Born and raised in Rome, I live between Italy and New York where I obtained my degree at New York University’s school of journalism. Words and images are part of my storytelling narrative: from my experience with the mountain gorillas in Uganda, to the destruction of native lands in the US plagued by Trump’s anti-environmental agenda, and again, from the struggle of a mother with opioid use disorder in New York’s most drug-ridden neighbourhood, to the social and environmental crisis of those Caribbean islands wiped out by violent hurricanes. I believe in the power of stories that go beyond the predictable, stories that are able to offer new and unusual perspectives even for the most commonly recurring issues in the media. I’ve worked with the BBC, Il Manifesto, Internazionale, the Bureau of Investigative Journalism in Puerto Rico, NBC and others. Travelling, nature and good food take care of my body and my soul.
