My traditional Christmas photograph is here. In the most strange year I ever had I felt the need to keep alive the hope of freedom, to fight in my humble way the tyrants trying to cancel our faith and our traditions. Merry Christmas my friends, and a wonderful next year full of rebellion to tyranny and regained freedom for all of us! Just click on the image if you like to see it enlarged. . See you next year my friends.

I opened my studio in July 1994 and I started to really work and promote myself in 1995. I always had a passion for reconstructing ambiences and mood so also for Christmas I went in that direction and realized a model of a mountain lodge.
