After collaborating with some magazines and Contemporary History sites, it began to publish several essays about photography during the years of World War II, the period of Italian colonialism, the history of the Istituto Luce, trying to find in the official photographs those details and clues that describe the social reality beyond the propaganda message. He is also the author of several short stories, a short noir novel and an anthology of poems - written between 1990 and 2010 - about love, memory and war.
