Born in Venice in 1950, he has always been interested in arts in general, developing as he grew up a marked aptitude for artistic studies. His passion for shape and colour expressed itself and was consolidated by his studies undertaken under the prestigious guidance of Alberto Viani at the Accademia delle Belle Arti in Venice. In the mid-seventies there began the first Advanced Course in Industrial Design promoted by the Faculty of Architecture in which he actively participated. Over the following years he showed himself to be a designer gifted with considerable creative ability and a marked aesthetic sense.
