Davide was born in Messina (Italy) in 1991. He is a photojournalist based in Milan.

He graduated in 2016 at IED (Istituto Europeo di Design) at the school of visual arts in photography.

He does not neglect the artistic research that led him to the creation of a book, “Others”, in which it is analyzed the relationship between man and reality. Precisely about this work has been organized in 2016 in Messina his first solo exhibition and subsequently “Others” has also joined the circuit of Milano Photo Festival 2017 and Milano Photo Week 2017.

Later, since the end of 2016, he focused on the theme of globalization, looking for stories that would give voice to the small realities crushed by that indefatigable desire for equality. This led to the realization of “Never-never land” and “Across the river’s flow”, the first chapters of the series. In 2019 He decided to follow his passion for science and environmental problems with the realization of “Where the gaze falls”, a work about the problem of plastic pollution in the Mediterranean Sea.

Davide, inserted in 2014 among the 10 best under 25 Italian talents and nominated in 2019 by 6×6 World Press Photo Global Talent Program, has been published by National Geographic, D-La Repubblica Magazine, I-D and others. His works received national and international awards, being exhibited in a several festivals all around the world.
