In 2002 he graduated in History of Modern Art from University of Milan under the guidance of Professor Fernando Mazzocca, with a dissertation entitled Feste pubbliche e Arte di Stato nella Milano Napoleonica (Public celebrations and State Art in Napoleonic Milan), which was later included in the exhibition catalogue Napoleone e la Repubblica italiana (Skira). Four years later, he obtained a PhD in History and Critique of the Artistic and Cultural Heritage with a research project on the architectural and sculptural worksite of the Arco della Pace in Milan, which was subsequently the subject of several essays published in the volume Ottocento lombardo. Arti e decorazioni (Skira) and in the proceedings of the Italo-Swiss conference L'architecture de l'Empire entre France et l'Italie (Silvana Editoriale).
In 2007 he won a post-doctoral fellowship at the Kunsthistorische Institut in Florenz (Max-Planch Institut) where he conducted a monographic research on the Milanese painter Andrea Appiani, which led to a number of critical studies, including Dal pubblico al privato: Andrea Appiani consulente e collezionista di opere d'arte (Electa); Palazzo Diotti a Milano (Skira); Luigi Canonica. Architetto di utilità pubblica e privata (Mendisio Academy Press) and Contro il Barocco (Campisano editore).
In the following years he oriented his studies on Italian art of the 19th and 20th centuries, focusing on the main artistic movements of the period (Macchiaioli, Divisionism, Futurism, Metaphysics and Art of the First and Second World War) and the most prominent personalities who took part in them (Giacomo Balla, Giovanni Boldini, Giorgio De Chirico, Giovanni Fattori, Antonio Mancini, Angelo Morbelli, Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo, Giovanni Segantini).
He regularly contributes to exhibition catalogues both in Italy and abroad, including Canova and Thorvaldsen. La nascita della scultura moderna (Gallerie d'Italia, Milan); En passant. Impressionism in sculpture (Städel Museum, Frankfurt am Main); Ulisse. L'arte e il mito (Musei San Domenico, Forlì) and, lastly, Dante. La visione dell'arte (Musei San Domenico, Forlì). He has contributed to the cataloguing and indexing of the art collections of museums (Pinacoteca Ambrosiana and Galleria d'Arte Moderna di Milano) and public organisations (Banca Commerciale Italiana and Intesa Sanpaolo).
He also contributed to the archival research for the "La Grande Brera" project.
Involved in the art market for more than a ten years now, in 2021 he joined Maurizio Nobile's team as manager of the Milan gallery based in Palazzo Bagatti Valsecchi.
