Fabio Volo

Milan (Ita) commissioned by Vanity Fair

Negrita “Brucero’ per te” track by track directed by Alessio Pizzicannella

This is part of a web project we developed with Negrita.

Track by Track is a video Documentary on “Dannato Vivere” (the latest Negrita’s album) where each track is analyzed and discussed by the band members and producer.
Here is a trailer of one of the episodes.


Catania (Ita) 11/11 commissioned by Vanity Fair.


Los Angeles (USA)  10/11 commissioned by Universal Music.

I worked with Negrita consistently for the last 10 years (or just short of), this time around we wanted to experiment a little bit, so we looked back to the early 90′s,the grunge period, a time in music which meant a lot to both the band and me. So here we go with  fish eye lenses and cross processing !!


Cesare Cremonini

Bologna (Ita) 10/11

Yet another chance to work with Cesare. It was hard to keep up with wath we did in Locarno, but we managed I’d say.


Milan (Ita) 10/11 commissioned by Vanity Fair


Nashville,Memphis,New York (USA) 10/11 commissioned by Vanity Fair

After shooting the press shots for the band in L.A. I went on the Jack Daniel’s tour across the US with  them. In New York we were joined by Vanity Fair and this the result of that adventure. You can see/read more about this shoot  in the SPECIAL PROJECTS section of this website.

Marco Mengoni

Rome (Ita) 07/11 commissioned by Sony Music.

I photographed Mengoni a few months earlier for his live Cd/Dvd.

He is so easy to photograph. He knows how to play with the camera. I love the BW shots in particular.


Backstage Ligabue photo shoot for Max

Cesare Cremonini

Locarno (CH) 07/11 commissioned by Max magazine.

Eventful to say the least ! what a great gig it turned out to be. My first time in Locarno proved to be a pivotal event in my life. My first shoot with Cesare was also a chance to get to know a beautiful human being. The chance to follow him around during the soundcheck, witness the moments before going on stage, the show and being in the dressing room just after it, made for some great shots. Way to go !!

Glastonbury 2011

Glastonbury Festival 2011     Glastonbury (UK) 06/11 commissioned by Vanity Fair.

Oh boy ! the music, the mud, the people. I’ve going to this Glasto for almost 15 years now, and for just as long I’ve been trying to explain it to people. I find it hard, you really have to see it yourself. But this year a got a little closer, as Vanity Fair wasn’t so interested in the music so much as the crowd. You can see/read more   in the SPECIAL PROJECTS section of this website.



Verona (Ita) 05/11 commissioned  by Sport Week

Lorraine Motel Memphis

Memphis (USA) 08/10 commissioned by Vanity Fair magazine.

On April 4 1968 Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. Shot dead on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel at 450 Mulberry Street, now the National Civil Rights Museum.

I didn’t expect it but standing right there on that balcony really got to me, and the whole museum experience was very moving. I’m glad I  got this assignment, it’s one of those that sticks with me.

Wind Music Awards

Verona (Ita) 05/11 commissioned by Sport Week magazine.

Ok this was a hard shoot to set up but everybody was so into the idea that it seemed an easy one. Sport Week wanted all this musicians to show their passion for sport by picking up their fav props. You can see/read more about this shoot  in the SPECIAL PROJECTS section of this website.


Esperanza Spalding

Rome (Ita) 11/10 commissioned by Style magazine.

It was one of those half hour shoot by the hotel. But there was this great light, and across the street a little park. Her look, that location and the light just screamed seventies !

Francesco Renga

London (UK) 02/11 commissioned by Gioia magazine.

Just the two of us and a Leica M9 for 24 hours in London. I love this shots, by far may favourite shoot with Renga. No strings attached and in a place were nobody noticed us meant great intimacy.

Francesco Renga

ebook for the 2011 tour.

It was a little

experiment that Francesco and I wanted to try. All the shot were taken during the rehearsal for the tour and its first date. It was all eventually released as an ebook.

Relatively quick shoot considering it involved a child.

Stefano Mauri

Rome (Ita) 04/11 commissioned by Sport Week magazine



MAX  cover shoot Milan (Ita) 04/11 commissioned by Max magazine

This was a fun day, I’ve photographed Luciano a bunch of times and now we seem to understand each other straight away. It took no time at all for the cover shot (believe it or not it was the first frame we shot on the day!!), which gave us the time and freedom to experiment a little more for the rest of the day.
