Hi, I’m Paolo.
Actor and visual artist from Italy.
I was born and raised in the Langhe region, a land of nature, sunsets and peasant poetry. I started taking photographs from a very young age with the desire to observe the world from ever new perspectives and to bring hidden details to the foreground.
The moving image was the first way I discovered to tell stories, until I met the Theater.
A collection of works in which I had roles in all the production’s stages, from design, to shooting, to post-production.

Another big part of my research as a visual artist is photography. In the last few years I have been carrying out a portrait photography project for actors and performers in collaboration with Maria Rita Lo Destro, developing a shooting concept that results as an experience that has many features in common with a theater workshop.
During the shooting we use different tools including a musical path that leads the subject to leave all physical and mental resistance to arrive at a neutral presence ready to be colored with the many emotional nuances of the music.
