Contemporary author mainly interested in social and current issues in which the environment is the protagonist. This is represented as a place where relationships between territory and human activity emerge. His work begins with a survey of sites of national interest, areas of the Italian landscape compromised by man throughout history. Subsequently he deals with geomorphological issues of a territory and the resulting effects, such as the depopulation of small villages. He has recently approached positive industrial realities based on circular economy and sustainability, but also centers of Italian excellence in the tech and innovative field that look to the future. The interest in the environment arises from the need to contribute in a complicated historical period where the climate emergency creates, especially in young people, an anxiety to live with.
