Italia Loves Emilia

Campo volo Stage & Backstage, Sept 2012 Ita.

Some of the biggest artists in Italy held a massive concert in front of a crowd of 150.000  to raise money to help rebuild in an area devastated by the earthquake.

The atmosphere was just right, everybody involved did the utmost and the crowd made it a very special night.
I feel honoured to have been asked to capture this event.
The short journey on the bus with all of the artists will forever be one of my most treasured moments.

Alessio Pizzicannella Showreel



Alessio  moved to London in 1993  where he studied photography at the London College of Printing.

In 1996 he began working for the NME (New Musical Express) and for the next six years travelled the world, shooting everyone from Metallica,Neil Young, Rolling Stones,U2, Eminem to Pink.

Experience that led to work from all major & independent labels, artists management’s  and a host of other magazines and papers in the UK, Italy and the rest of Europe ( Times, Rolling Stone,Guardian,Observer…).

After moving back to Italy in 2002 Alessio’s magazine work intensified and  led him to photograph outside of the music business and into fashion and advertisement (Danone/Activia, Nike, Talco,Fiat,Yamaha etc..).

A tight collaboration with Vanity Fair among other newspapers and magazines made his a household name in the industry.

In June 2012 Alessio moved to Switzerland where he intends to intensify his work.

Catania (Ita) 11/11 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.

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.

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.
