In my whole I've always been interested in the moving image. I've started when I was teen ager just playing with cameras of my parents and I continued till I was student in the last year of Course in Science of Communication and I decided to make the final thesis in Videoart (in 1999). After that in Milan I applied for a course in Documentary production (in 2004) and several small workshops and mini courses. In London in continued to apply in other short courses and workshops. I think there is always something new to learn. Here there is the list or the courses starting from the last one:
Seminar "How To Make A Documentary That The BBC Will Buy", with Col Spector

Seminar in Experimental Cinema
BFI (British Film Institute) in association with LUX, London, 2015
The seminar was a great opportunity to reflect and sharing ideas about the experimental works that have been presented during the London Film Festival.
“Seminar participants attend the Experimenta festival screenings, and draw upon and interrogate their responses to these – extending from themes, issues, curatorial premises and the festival’s structure itself to individual works as they relate to a developing, ongoing conversation around contemporary moving image practices”.
