I'm an Italian photographer and art director based in Paris, working in Europe, North Africa, Asia.
At the moment i'm working on "We need no education", an unprecedented international discovery of Ultras football fans culture. With historian Sébastien Louis, one of the specialists in radical football supporters, we document Ultras groups wherever they are.
Since 2015, we have been working to a photographic documentary focused on football supporters culture. Football is a privileged field of inquiry that offers original access to the complexity of contemporary societies, in the North as in the South. In its vast galaxy, it feeds and configures popular passions, while constituting itself in a gigantic globalized economic and financial sphere. The aim of this project is to collect and tell stories related to football as an invention of everyday life.
Concretely, we collect images, videos and objects. Our research focuses in particular on one of the major currents of radical fandom, Ultras, a youth movement that was born in Italy in the late sixties.
We need no education focuses in particular on Utras practices in North Africa and Asia.
Football Stories is a collection of mages that telling about the passion for football, documenting the way of life of supporters inside and outside the stadium.
In 2017, a first documentary photography collection - with photos taken in Israel, Palestine, North Africa and Europe - was deposited at Mucem (Marseille), as part of the 2015-2017 surveys / collections "Football and identitites ”, in view of the exhibition Nous Sommes Foot. The place of women in groups is one of the subjects we are exploring now, in North Africa as in Asia.
