After graduating high school in the Art Institute of Porta Romana he moved to Den Haag to study at the KABK where Mattia Papp graduated in July of 2017. His work takes classical elements of Italian tradition, its streets,  its smells, old shops and architecture, and translates them into a contemporary language using different media, from paint to ceramics and videos. With his graduation work in KABK he won the Jan Roede award, award and eventually got invited to various exhibitions and other awards, including the Piket prize. He has been working with theatre, painting and installations since then, aiming to engage Florence and the Netherlands in a creative and active dialogue.
In 2019 and early 2020 he held courses at the academy of art in The Hague.
