He was brought up in the countryside and developed a natural talent for plants. Thirty-eight years ago he met Venerando Faro for the first time and, since then, he has been working alongside with him. A life spent in studying plants, working on the field, literally. All his gardens draw inspiration from the wild, colourful landscapes of the island and the countryside views of his childhood. His favourite works are those where he is allowed to set his creativity free. He is very proud of the gardens he created in Pantelleria, Lampedusa and Cassibile.
