1.Tell us what you do and your beginnings.

Everything happened very quickly: when I was in high school, my art professor recognized something in my hands, because I was capable to moulding clay although I never did before. So, one day he brought me in front of a dark stone and he said:

“Fabio, now work on this small block of marble”.

I took hammer and chisel and I suddenly saw a white brilliant shard getting out from the marble. Let’s say that in that moment I decided to be a sculptor.
