Matteo was born in La Spezia, Italy, in 1978. After high school he decided to play drama and music and to study languages and philosophy while travelling as much as he could. Then since 2006 he has lived in various European and Asian countries volunteering for different non-profit organisations and working in fields related to art, entertainment and teaching.
That same open-minded attitude brought him to photography in 2014. Back then, he felt as he had found a new and liberating way to connect with his surroundings, the others and, ultimately, with himself. Now that feeling still holds very true.
Mainly self-taught. Freelancing from 2020. Currently developing multiple projects both in Italy and South America
