Could you describe your career path to us in a few words? When did it start and how did you get involved with this job?
When I was still at university (aeronautical engineering) I was interested in flight/driving simulators. I bought a couple of books on 3D graphics and I started experimenting with 3ds for DOS... the passion was born there. I quickly began to work for event agencies here in Italy and after a few years I made my first 3d animation for an automotive convention. This was fifteen years ago.

Have you ever won an award for your work or even any distinctions at the forums you participated in?
Maybe I was "editor"s choice" or something like that at cg-cars.com... But I do not particularly care for awards. I have never participated in contests, or competitions, I think.
Which are your plans or better your goal for the future?
I want to improve on every single aspect of my work. Everything can be improved, always..

Observe the world around you and experiment, try taking new paths, use new techniques. The software is primarily a tool; what is more important is the creativity of the user.
