Photographer & videographer
Born in 1982 in Ferrara, Niccolò grows up in Milan where he studies Economics and Management. In 2004 he moves to the United States, in Boston first, to achieve a Masters in Marketing and Communications, then in New York, working for Campari. Niccolò moves back to Italy in 2008 where he works for the advertisement industry, at first at Ogilvy and Mother, and since 2012 as a freelance photographer. His lifelong great passion for mountain, alpinism, ski, and for adventure in general, drives his photography more and more towards story-telling.
