(b. 1986 Italy) sees his artistic research as the possibility to participate in the visualisation of posthuman paths driven more and more by collective conceptual creativity. His work has included acts of denunciation of structural injustice towards indigenous knowledge and other non-humans, defined as animals, plants and land, in an attempt to understand and deepen the multi-level relationship between humans and nature.

Pietro is currently pursuing an MFA in Visual Arts at Chiang Mai University, Northern Thailand. Previously he studied photography at the Pathshala Institute Bangladesh. He has been living in Asia since early 2018.
