"The need that man has, especially in some phases of his life, is to get out of certain contexts and change things."
Salento is my motherland.My family has been in the stone carving business for ever.We shape stones, transformthem and fill them with a lifeof its own. This is whereI grew up and this is where I encountered Art - from studying it as a young boy to shape its forms with the help of clay.
This is the Art that nourishes me. And, through this Art, I have discovered the same mystery creating everything and guiding my hands today.
