With his drawings on paper, he creates a playful dialogue with the
familiar and the informal, by exploring the simple beauty that can be found in human
figures in the most common and natural situations.

FG: If you should tell someone the story of your life, from where would you start?
Alessandro: I don’t know honestly.
FG: Does your background as a photographer influence your work?
Alessandro: Yes in a sense, mostly if I imagine poses of the subjects I am painting, right there, I think my years being a photographer and my eye has developed is unconsciously with my decisions.
FG: What would you like your work to evoke in the viewer?
Alessandro: I am not trying to focus or evoke any feelings with viewers of my work. Every time I paint I feel a different feeling and that feeling follows me in the making of that painting but later, when the painting is finished and maybe few days have passed, that feeling is changed and in a few days after it could change again. By nature our moods and feelings change throughout the day for one reason or another, so the painting can evoke different feelings; it depends just with which eyes we are looking.
FG: When was the first time a work of art catch you? What was it?
Alessandro: I was 10 year old at the Met in NY. The paintings of Rothko, in particularly no.13 and the Untitled in red and black. I stayed in front of them staring for so long. The simplicity, yet the deepness of emotions, the calmness and surrendering yourself: I felt disarmed still so inspired. Since then I have always had the feeling of wanting to leave something in this world, something exciting, as those paintings did that to me. At that time I didn't know what and where to creatively go, the confidence of expression came later but at that time a seed was planted.
FG: What do you need to feel happy?
