I am an Italian poet and writer. I have worked with the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the British Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the National Roman Museum, the Archaeological Museum in Naples, the Ara Pacis Museum, the Musei Capitolini, and the Glyptothek of Munich composing poems for ancient works of art including the Terme Boxer, the Discobolus, the Arundel Head, the Ludovisi Gaul, the Victorious Youth, the Farnese Hercules, the Hercules by Scopas, the Elgin marbles from the Parthenon, the Barberini Faun, and many other masterpieces. My poems have been performed by actors such as Joe Mantegna, Michael Imperioli, Burt Young, Alessandro Haber, Robert Davi, Vincent Piazza, and Franco Nero.
