This gave a start to a great passion that prompted him to learn the first rudiments of Photographic Art in a studio in Parma. In 1965, he was hired by the Gazzetta di Parma as the first official photographer of the city newspaper. Later, after obtaining a degree in journalism in Rome in 1979, he was hired by the same newspaper as professional journalist. With the Gazzetta di Parma, he worked as a journalist reporter for thirty-five years, from 1965 to 2000. He was also a correspondent for the international Associated Press agency for thirty years and for five of the newspaper Secolo XIX in Genoa.
