I was born in Turin in 1979, now I live in Bologna. I worked as a journalist for some years, writing about social issues. In 2009 I won the Komikazen festival with the idea for my first graphic novel, Journal of a Farewell, published in 2010 in Italy by Comma 22 and in 2012 in France by Ca et là. My second graphic novel is called A Tranquil Star - A Sentimental Portrait of Primo Levi, published in Italy in 2014 by Comma 22 and in 2015 in France by Rackham. A Tranquil Star won the Cosmonauti prize as best book and the Prix Révélation at the Angouleme Festival in 2016. In 2015 I published a short story called Rec Play, prelude to a possible future graphic novel. I am co-founder at Graphic News, webmagazine dedicated to comics journalism.
