Born in Asola (Mantua) in 1961, he moved to Milan in 1980, where he still lives. He participated in the first collective exhibition in 1985 at the former Brown Boveri factory where he met Corrado Levi, his first master. He frequented the Italian art world along with other young artists at a time of renewal, when Art Povera and the Transavanguardia were no longer predominant. He has held a series of personal exhibitions in Italian and foreign art institutions and galleries and has participated in numerous collective exhibitions in Italy and abroad, including the Venice Biennale, Istanbul and Gwanjiu. He has traveled mainly in and around Europe, North America and Asia, as well as participating in artist residency programmes in San Francisco, Boston and San Antonio, New Delhi  and Clisson in France.
