This is my collection of landscape photos from the alps, mainly Switzerland and Italy. I enjoy hiking and taking pictures in the mountains. Lakes, rivers and waterfalls are my favorite subjects. In Switzerland the main locations are situated in Ticino and Graubünden, in Italy the main spots are located near Lugano, in the region of Como and Varese.  


This is my collection of winter landscape photos from the alps, mainly shot in Graubünden. Snow gives to an image a touch of minimalism. I like it! This is the beginning of a new project to create a book.   


In 2015 I visited Iceland for the first time, I visited Snæfellsnes and the Westfjords. Last year I went back to Iceland, I visited with Iceland-photo-tours the south and the north. Iceland is a wonderful location and it's a paradise for photographers who want to benefit from the beautiful light and the unique landscapes. In this section you fill find not only the classic shots of Iceland but also a few unusual images. 


Tuscany is one of my favorite destination and it's not so far away from Lugano. I often travel to Lucca and the surroundings area but this year I was for the first time in Val d'Orcia, a great destination for photographers. The history behind every village and city in Tuscany is incredible and there are lot of locations that are worth visiting. And last but not least the food and the wine are fantastic!

I had the chance to discover the job of the violinmaker, "liutaio" in Italian. I visited Christian Guidetti in his atelier and took a few beautiful pictures during his work. His passion for the job, his patience and the importance of the details are really impressive and I could enjoy every moment in his atelier. I like the process of shaping the wood and the warm colors of the string instruments. A fantastic experience! Clicking below you can find more information on Christian Guidetti. 


This image was awarded "Photo of the year 2018" by the members of the Fotoclub Lugano. Once a year I visit for a few days a city and I try to capture beautiful pictures of buildings and bridges. In my gallery you can enjoy images from London, Valencia, Dubai and Berlin. In this gallery you will find only black & white images, in my opinion the best way to show architectural work.


I live in Lugano and I'm sure that this is one of the most beautiful city of the world. From the Monte San Salvatore, the mountain in the middle of the Ceresio's lake, you can enjoy a spectacular view of Lugano and the surrounding mountains. Lugano it's also the ideal location to to explore the alps.
