In terms of CG, How did
it all begin for you?
All began when I was at art school. I saw from
a friend of my brother 3d studio (the old release!)
and I found it amazing how you could move in
a 3d world....over the time I understand that
CG is an excellent tool to develop your own
artistic potential.It gives you the possibility
to unify all the great arts like sculpting,
painting, animation, directing and other in
one virtual environment.
What was your very first
CG project? was it a success?
very first project is "The Glubber";
I started with the idea to do just a little
animation of a character, then I developed it
into a 3d short. For me it's a success, the
success that you have when you show to yourself
that you are able to finish a project of yours,
and is considered a success because it won two
first price here in Italy like best 3d short

What are you plans
for the future?
I like to work on the cinema environment. In the
last year I work for "Aida degli Alberi",
where I create over 1 minute of CG for the last
sequence of the movie, and I also worked on the
special effects of two american horror movies.
But my plans for the future are to create something
that here in Italy doesn't exist, a 3d movie...
Are you working on any projects currently? If

I just finished working on a trailer for a 3d
you give away one of your CG secrets to success?
don't know if I have secrets for success, but
I take some Leonardo da Vinci principles to
live my life:))) Curiosity, the balance between
art and science, research.....those are always
actual and I think that they are very useful
