As a child, I spent a lot of time looking at all kinds of pictures in books and going to the “botteghe” artistic pottery workshops in my hometown, Italy. My work has led me in the educational and social field. I often liked to look at photo exhibitions and meet artists and photographers. My Madagascar is a land that brings us back to a real reality, to a mirror-meeting with ourselves, a reality without metaphor.
