In 2019 he was selected by SI Fest, the Photography Festival of Savignano sul Rubicone, to participate in the RIO Project (Reconstruction of Identities) with a series on immigration. His images are very rigorous and refined, nothing appears "too much" or "too little". Surprise, light irony and never sarcasm. He works with amazement, curiosity and never preconception.
