As a child, I spent a lot of time looking at all kinds of pictures in the books and attending the "botteghe" artistic pottery workshops in my home town, Italy. My work led me in the educational and social field. I loved watching photo exhibitions and meeting artists and photojournalists. My Madagascar is a land that brings us back to a reality of all court, to a meeting-mirror with ourselves, a reality without metaphor.
