From 2000 to 2014 I worked as Architect and Interior Designer at the most important design companies of Hainan Province. Therefore I was able to approach the Chinese and the local habits, languages and culture.
I tried to bring to my projects both the western cultural background that belongs to me, and the creative suggestions that chinese cultural heritage offers.
During my over ten-year career in China I designed: Hotels, Shopping centers, Cultural centers, Leisure centers, Residences, Offices, Interiors, Furnitures and Graphics.
In 2001 I received the "Foreign Expert Certificate" in the fields of economy and technology. In 2006 I received the "Coconut Island Award" from Hainan Province Government.
A somewhat dated but more complete collection of project can be found here.
In this category I have collected projects that don't directly concern architecture or cinematography, my main occupations. Therefore I will put even graphics and drawings on it.
While the architect job is temporarily suspended, it happens sometimes to have a new graphic idea or something that is worth to publish.
I started writing music in 1986. In that year, with Gianmarco and Massimo, we joined together to form the band "Machines Celibataires". In the years the band went through the replacement of several members until 2000, the year in which the band broke up. "Machines Celibataires" have produced soundtracks for the theater, participate in collaborative records, and made multimedia shows.
From the show "Margini", held in 1998, we have a couple of tracks where I played bass guitar, Barbara flute, Andrea drums and Gianmarco vocals:

Since 2001, during the stay in China, i tried to bring the oriental atmosphere onto my compositions. My wife Xiaowei wrote the lyrics and sang three songs. Here they are:
Haidao de nuren
Together with Carlo who lived in Lisbon we started the long-distance-internet-based band "Macria", that had a rather short life and has not published anything but wrote some good tracks. Here is one of them:
In 2014 I decided to remaster and rearrange some old songs. Here we have "Orpheus" in an instrumental version, a very old song from "Machines celibataires":
I recently left out the musical composition to dedicate myself more actively to video production but still, having the time, I write the soundtracks of my short films. These are "Cartaccia" (2018) and "The messenger" (2019) background music:
