Born in Bologna, 1986. Currently living in Northern Thailand.

Graduated from the international program of Photography at Pathshala South Asia Media Institute.

Pietro 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 includes 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.
