Senigallia (Italy), 01.08.1925 - Senigallia (Italy), 25.11.2000
When he was only ten years old he witnessed his father's passing and could not finish his studies; he had to find employment to provide for the family's needs. As soon as he was 13 years old, he was hired at the "Giunchedi" printing house as an apprentice. Here he worked until the printing shop was destroyed by the bombs of the war. After the reconstruction he decided to be self-employed and as soon as he was 25 he managed to open the Marchigiana Printing House. He began to approach photography and came into contact with Ferruccio Ferroni and Giuseppe Cavalli and joined the MISA circle, a group of photographers in Senigallia. Between '53 and '63 many of his internationally renowned shots were born, and he attracted the attention of John Szarkowski, at the time director of MOMA in New York.
