Influenced by Cézanne, he has a passion for engraving and prints with warm chromatic intonations and broad lines. In the 1960s, he was hired by FORTUNE magazine to do portraits of certain cities in the United States. He moved to Paris in 1971 and illustrated the capital, which changed with the seasons. That same year, he was awarded the gold medal of cultural merit by the Italian president.
