There is a craft that encompasses all others. A profession of craftsmanship and observation, of practice and theory. The profession of the documentary maker, an independent author traveling among the lives of others. Reality is their work material, one subject to interpretation and narration. The documentary maker not only narrates reality, but contributes to creating it and for this reason it will always be a valuable line of work.

He is an author of books, short films and documentaries, including the award-winning ? Maasai in the Alps?, Nijol?andSiamo qui da vent?anni.
