Intro
My work is definitely connected to my private life, in terms of conveying messages that tell my story. This is what I refer to as communication, so it’s universal.
Do you think that jewellery is being standardized?  
Jewellery represents a great field to be explored for creative minds, and this is nothing new if we look back in history. What is new is the increasing variety of materials and techniques being used. So how can we say that jewelley is being standardized when there is such an overwhelming production?


What is there of local and universal in your artistic work?
My work is definitely connected to my private life, in terms of conveying messages that tell my story. This is what I refer to as communication, so it’s universal. What is local is the combination of classic and contemporary taste for beauty.


What do you expect when exposing your work to the public (for example with an exhibition)?
I expect that people like it truly, that they see the connection between the concept, the idea behind it and the finished piece, that they can feel how strong my passion is.


Are other areas besides the jewellery, present in your work? 
So many, from literature to architecture to graphics..


The last work, book, film, city that has moved me was…
The last city/place that has moved me was the island of Lanzarote.


A place, space, country whose creativity surprises me...
Northern Europe countries.


Is there any designer, jeweller, artist, you appreciate a lot?
There are many. I take my chance to mention Karl Fritsch among the jewellers, then David Bowie as a superb, multifaceted artist


What piece or work has given you the most satisfaction?
No doubts the Move me porcelain neckpiece.

Do you read Jewellery Magazines? What is your source to get information?
I read books rather than magazines and anyway my source to get information is the web.


Do you discuss your work with other jewellery artists or any other person?
Yes, I often discuss my work with other people that have to do with the world of art, not necessarily and not only with jewellery artists.


What is your first thought when you hear the word Future? What do you expect for?
I really try hard to live in the present time. When it happens to me to hear the word future my first thought is change. I expect the future to lead to constant change, which means moving from one point of view to another, which means personal and universal growth.
