He began his work as a teacher in 1986 at the summer academy for sculpture "Campo de'll Altissimo" in Italy. And was part of the school until 2022.
In order to be able to pass on his experience in these areas and due to the possibility of a great location in Berlin-Reinickendorf in the garden of the old destillery Monopol, he founded the "School of Sculpture" in Berlin together with Tobia Silvotti in 2023. "School of Sculpture" offers marble workshops and sculpture courses with, granite, Italien Alabaster, Travertine and other types of stone.
The desire is to convey the experience of creating one's very own sculpture and individual expression with traditional and modern tools. To impart the craft and artistic basics especially to young and also older and experienced people. Everyone is welcome to give free rein to their imagination and creative power and create something unique.
