Since he was born at the foot of Apuan Alps he was surrounded by white marbles, dusted craftsmen and used to hear the music of machines working that pure material. He gained craftsman experience in the workshops of his Pietrasanta, renowned center for marble working and sculpture. He furthered his studies at the Carrara Academy of Fine Arts, where he learned also to pair this exquisite material with modern design.
