I'm an Italian media artist based in Rotterdam. In my research, 
I employ new media to explore the relationship between modernity and the Western cultural background, cultural appropriation, and the relationship between people and places. My works result in a motley combination of sounds, pictures, moving images and graphics staging a personal universe where the present is continuously questioned and discussed.
