Born in 1989 in Alcamo, he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Design at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Palermo and later he enrolled in the Master Degree in Design at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Florence, where he is currently studying and lives. In 2012 participates in the Noto Made in Medi and Palermo Design Week with his thesis focused on the study of color of Josef Albers. The Product Design and Interior Design are the fields in which it focuses its research, with particular attention to the intrinsic qualities of materials and how they relate to our five senses.

Pin&Pinta are two beer mugs. In their form, nothing is left to chance. While flares provide a secure grip on mugs, where the mug was not glazed, the roughness of the terracotta becomes pretty much a non-slip surface.
For me, the relationship between Craft and Design is a relationship that must become ever more important and constant. Where my design skills end, begins the experience of working craftsman, thus making my job a meeting point halfway between the experience and the innovation.
