(Palermo, February 12, 1978)
Editor, critic and essayist, takes his first steps in the world of art in the dual role of painter and gallery owner. The experience lived within the mechanisms of both barricades allows him to deal with the image of artists with rare sensitivity, through the creation of events of important national and foreign caliber. In 2002 he founded the Art Diffusion Center, a publishing house that soon established itself in the sector’s publishing scenario. Since 2004, thousands of artists have exhibited in the exhibitions he conceived and created in cities around the world.
From 2003 to 2012 he directed the periodical of art and culture Boè, giving life to further successful editorial products, such as “Artistic Avant-gardes” and “Great Masters”. In 2010 he was co-founder with Paolo Levi of the periodical Effetto Arte. In 2013 and 2015 he directed the Palermo International Biennial with Vittorio Sgarbi and Paolo Levi. In 2015, he also directed the “L’Isola che C’è” festival of art and culture with Vittorio Sgarbi, Paolo Levi, Red Ronnie, Dolce Nera and other artists.
Since 2018 he has been director of the art periodical ART NOW. In 2019 he contributed to the creation of the “Artisti” International Art Yearbook, with texts by Vittorio Sgarbi, Luca Beatrice, Angelo Crespi, Philippe Daverio, Paolo Levi, distributed by Mondadori Store.
