He was born in Leonforte in the province of Enna on May 22, 1947. He spent his childhood in Sicily and in 1956 the family emigrated to Turin where he showed an early interest in art. At the age of sixteen he participated in the 121st Exposition of the Promoter of Fine Arts society with a Leonardo style drawing, depicting an old man’s head.
Since 1976 he has created a series of simplistic landscapes, with bright colors, cavaliers among architectural ruins and visions of weary classic columns, seen in various moments of the day, from dawn until dusk. Between 1982 and 1983 exhibitions of his work were held in Gand, Lucerne and Lyons. Since then he has exhibited on a regular basis in Italy (Milan, Genova and Rome) and abroad ( New York, Stuttgart, Monaco and Cologne).
