When I came back to Italy I couldn't fit anymore in my native Rome and I moved into Calcata, a small medieval village in the middle of a natural reserve www.calcata.info.
In 1997 I was able to start my dream, Metamorphosi.
It's hasn't been easy at all sometime and I made a lot of mistakes but I happily survived.
Since a year ago I came back to Rome, now I work as a Production Designer and as an artist and interior decorator still using only recycled or ecological material.
I still love to make jewerly and windchimes once in a while and sell it.

Thank you for taking the time to read all of this.
