He was a pioneer of video art in Italy. He started in the early seventies with visual writing, performance and video, used according to a personal lyrical and narrative interpretation. In the mid-seventies he turned his attention to painting, but photography was in any case a constant modus operandi. With a flexible approach to different media, he has directed his research on the themes of memory, travel and the landscape as places of discovery of the sacred. Over the past twenty years she has placed the Jewish spiritual and cultural dimension at the poetic center of his work. His video works can be found in the Lux archives (London), Fondazione Cini, ex Galleria del Cavallino (Venice), M.o.M.A. (New York), Art Metropole (Toronto) and A.S.A.C. (Venice).
