Travelling to enhance creativity…

I love Florence, Florence is my home, here live my loved ones, but my work has led me to travel around the world. Thus my wanderings have taken me to visit incredible places, discover new cultures and meet great people.

I have also lived in Paris… London… New York… Milan…

Travel, discovering new places and learning from cultures so distant from my own has had a very important impact on me through my creative journey.

Greeting ideas and lifestyles different from those with which I grew up has allowed me to broaden and see beyond my natural horizon. It has taught me to discover aspects of life that I did not know, that I did not even imagine existed.

The charm of Paris, the vitality of New York, the international character of London, the feeling of peace of Bhutan, the worldliness of Los Angeles, the vibrations of Miami, the immensity of Antarctica, the ancient Chinese civilization, the interesting inhabitants of Papua New Guinea and the glimpses you get of each through the windows of their literatures and languages…

I could continue to talk of India, Japan, Brazil, Sweden, Argentina, Germany, Montenegro, Germany, Greece, Spain and Australia…

Whoever follows me knows every detail of my trips. I like to document them on the Blog sharing my impressions and the feelings that each of these trips have given me.

Traveling for me is a great source of inspiration. I have a vast collection of photographs. For every trip I take home thousands of photographs that I archive and analyze. Each of these images is associated with its own emotions as though they were keywords or metadata forever attached to the images themselves. They resurface strongly in my mind as in “la recherche du temps perdu”. Even the scents, the sounds and those unique sensations that every place and every person I have met on my trips have given me, return.

The advent of digital cameras and personal computers have opened the way for a new creativity made of colours, image overlays and sounds, each with an ease of archiving and retrieving. These can be both voluntary and involuntary as they make their way back into our memory.

I cannot yet reveal what are the travels that have inspired my next collection, but as you continue to follow me you will discover.

Ad maiora…
