He is author of novels and short stories,[1] a professional storyteller often involved in intercultural[2] and anti-racist[3] education[4] with projects and festivals.[5]

His first book, Tramonto ("Sunset"), Lapis Edizioni, in 2003 was awarded by the International Youth Library with The White Ravens,[6] a mention for books from around the world considered especially noteworthy.
