Having been a professional photographer for more than twenty years, Alessandro has always showed his skill in gathering the wealth of images; even from a faraway sight he chooses to pick up something essential, usually in an antirethorical or ironic way. The same style style is transmitted to every collateral activity of his life: as a food taster, a sculptor, a music-lover, (or even as a father!) he always finds a balance between compactness and fancy chaos. It is the same density he ideally expresses in smoking, inventing and producing his pipes. The pipe represents to him a microcosm of experience: an uncomparable compactness of sensations. In order to refine and express his passion Alessandro is now fully dedicated in producing pipes: pieces of art to be watched, touched, breethed.
