knowing the world using my hands

I like to build things. It is a way of knowing myself and the world, without stopping. When i was a child I built secret shelves for my desk, forts and theaters with pillows and sheets.
Using my hands has always been a way to test myself and find my place in the world, so I also learned to play a lot of musical instruments, to fix the boiler in the house, to build and move puppets. I know the world through my hands.

Seeing something born that wasn't there before, i think, is one of the great pleasures of life. If I had to choose a room to spend the rest of my life in it would be my workshop, I wouldn't feel locked up there for even a minute.

Once I arrived in Rome I found the job perfect for me: the puppeteer: I can give life to the puppets, through my hands, animating them, sewing their clothes, painting their faces, writing their stories, playing their music and sculpting their heads.

So that's what I am: a puppeteer.

Papier-mâché, wood, paints, glues and brushes have become my favorite ways to use the hands that are so important to me.
But all the things you will see on this shop are all creations of a proud puppetee, two hands and a head that tell, sing, write and play and I like to think that to all my objects remain attached, in addition to the paint, even a little music, a few words, a feeling and a story; look for them.

    I am a puppeteer. To live I tell stories and I do it using things I create with my hands. I love spending whole days in my workshop working with paper and glue. I can't wait to be able to do it with my daughter.
