Born in Florence in '66, my first camera was an Olympus half-frame kindly left on the Ponte Vecchio bridge by some absent-minded Japanese tourist for my father to find and bring to me at the age of 3.
But I refused to take photos up until my adulthood.

My first multimedia exhibition (poetry on lucid paper, music, staging) was held in 1986 c/o one of the the historic alternative Art centers in Florence called Pat-Pat Recorder; the exhibition was then videotaped and has been since kept in the archives of the Luigi Pecci Centre for Contemporary Art of Prato.
During the years I have enjoyed writing poetry, music journalism, videomaking, photography.
I am a Polaroider, iPhoneographer, Lomographer.
My photos have been exhibited and published in my country and around the world (New York, Los Angeles, Berkley, Berlin, London, Firenze, Milano, Roma, Trieste and a number of other places).

Feedbacks adding perspective will always be most appreciated!

    "Non mi perdo in mille termini tecnici, in ghirigori di concetti o altro: dico solo che Ale è il fotografo al quale mi ispiro. Per come cattura anche solo il momento che sembrerebbe banale ai più, per renderlo unico.
    Ale è Ale, insomma."

    "Pezzi deframmentati di vissuto. Come una mosca che scruta con mille occhi il volo che traccia nell'aria. E ne sottolinea i tratti. Colori e tagli particolari. Di tragicomici balletti di piedi e bocche che vogliono comunicare fra loro."

    "Alex è un mago della luce, del colore, del movimento. E' per me un grande fotografo, capace di emozionare. I dettagli sono il suo forte. E' molto fashion come direbbe una mia amica :)
    Da non perdere assolutamente!"

    "Mi ha sopportato per 5 anni a casa sua quando studiavo...
    Ora abbiamo la stessa passione per la fotografia.
    Le strade si incrociano per vari motivi, nevvero?
    Io lo faccio per lavoro e come spesso capita con gli appassionati lui è molto più bravo e attendo di me...
    si sa quando con una passione ci devi cavare la pagnotta, la poesia passa..."
