Italian film photographer based in Rome

I love film and I shoot with film cameras, mostly portraiture and nude art with natural light. The woman in my profile pictures is my beloved wife Alessandra, my first and best muse.

My professional life is devoted to scientific research: I am Professor of Economics at Sapienza University of Rome and I collaborate with the Higher School of Economics of Moscow and other institutions.

Since I travel a lot for conferences and meetings, I mostly shoot during my trips. I regularly shoot in Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Moscow, New York, Paris and Tokyo. However, sometimes I take a break from my ordinary academic life and I arrange shootings in Rome.

Here you can find my cv and other information on my activities: and

I love my academic work and I am not interested in making photography a source of income. I only work with volunteer models who wish to be in my works.

I am always looking forward to shooting with new and interesting people. Any kind of beauty is most welcome.

If you are interested in shooting together drop me a message and let's do some art!

    "I'm only a recent flickr user but a long-time flickr lurker, and Fabio is one of my greatest idols around here. Over time he has developed a candid-capturing and post-processing technique which I only can be jealous about. I would just love to take some photography classes from him...

    He's one of those must-follow photographers here on flickr... and you won't regret about it!"

I have never been so quickly put in aw by photos before. Every photograph is a masterpiece. The colors, locations, techniques are just flawless. Thank you so much for the inspiration you have given me."

    "One of the most intelligent and sensitive man I have ever met in flickr.

    You have just to look at his pics and you'll see how he feels life from within.


    Fabio, I love you, my dear friend."

    "A me Fabietto sembra di conoscerlo da una vita....ho fatto il tifo per lui fin dal primo istante.

    "Beh,io Fabio l'ho "conosciuto" tramite il Morula [ si',sembra strano che il Morula abbia gente 'normale' tra suoi contatti su Flickr! =P ]

    Mi e' piaciuto subito il suo stile : semplice,diretto,delicato,forte allo stesso tempo.

    E ogni giorno che passa , la sua arte migliora,lui cresce come fotografo.
    Bravo Fabio!

    Quando ci mettiamo a dieta? =P"

    "Ma non ti ho ancora scritto un testimonial? Lazy boy!

    Fabio è una delle primissime persone che ho trovato su Flickr, e di sicuro la prima che mi ha emozionato con le sue immagini, con il suo racconto autobiografico non facile e la sua schiettezza.

    Un giorno ci incontreremo, e sarà per caso."

    "Le foto di Fabio sono una cascata di emozioni che ti invadono senza alcun esitazione.
    Riesce a trasmettere veramente tante cose con scatti in BN apparentemente poco originali."

    "Fabio ha la grande capacità di catturare scatti di vita quotidiana, ritratti di persone che esprimono emozioni. Mai scontato, Fabio entra nel cuore della gente comune e noi che vediamo le sue fotografie non possiamo far altro che emozionarci."
