Stefano lives in Fidenza, a town in Northern Italy, somewhere in-between Parma and Milano.

    His education was mainly scientific and technical, while at the same time cultivating interests in music, visual arts, and photography in particular. In the past, he has been teaching informatics, mathematics, natural science, and has been a speaker at conferences worldwide. He currently holds photography classes in Northern Italy.

    He sees photography as a means to interpret reality and transfigure it through his personal outlook on life, remembering the lesson of Hamlet: "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy".

    Technically, he aims at perfection of detail and tonal nuances. To this extent, he works mainly with analog film on Large Format (8x10" / 20x25cm) cameras. He also uses digital cameras, exploiting the advantages of multi-shot techniques to guarantee a level of detail that is close to, or even surpasses, the quality of Large Format film.
