The temper house in Kew Gardens, London, is the world’s largest Victorian greenhouse. Many of the plants inside are some of the rarest in the world with some being nearly extinct. It was re-open after £41 MILLION restoration. #trees #green #london #kewgardens #earth @natgeo

Commuters, early morning in London. With a recorded population of 8,6 million people, walking in London on peak hours is like being transported by the current of a river. I want to find the way to express that massive feeling I have while I was working to the ‘Rising London’ story for @natgeo then I asked to my assistant @federicovandone to shoot some hyperlapse around London. My editor loved the idea! What do you think about it? #london #rising #population #future #hyperlapse #people #commuters #multimedia

The London highest public garden, the Sky garden. A posh place where to drink and enjoy a 360 view of the capital surrounded by lush tropical trees. Building suspended English landscape garden it could be the trend for the future #london #trees #landscape #nature #future shooting on assignment for @natgeo

The Thames Barrier prevents the flood of most of Greater London by exceptionally high tides and storm surges moving up from the North Sea. At the time of its construction, the barrier was expected to be used 2–3 times per year. It is now being used 6–7 times per year. Despite global warming and a consequently greater predicted rate of sea level rise the Thames barrier will not be enough in the next decades.

The 2018 taught us how climate change are so real, learning new ways to create energy, food and all things we get use to to have in our life is the biggest challenge for the future. Sometimes we sacrifice our beautiful landscape, like this one in Italy or others. My interest as a photographer is to find and share visual example about the transitional time we’re living. The struggle to survive that is already in action. Opening a debate might be the only way to find the right solution for #climatechange What do you think about it?? #energy #calabria #italy #wind #windenergy #landscape #planet #crisis #environment

We can retrieve from our memory a mental image of original places, animals or people and that is the neural representations of the visual memories we have. This image is similar to what I have in mind when I try to visualize trees. What’s yours? #trees #deepmemories #landscape #fog #mind

The fog for me is the closest meaning of ‘landscape’ in my memories. I grew up surrounded by fog for many years and for many months each year. The fact is that I love it and I miss it. Every time I’m back in my hometown, I desperately need to grab my drone and create images from the sky to celebrate those landscape. Something is wrong with me? #fog #deepmemories #white #landscape

Antimatter Factory, CERN. Here scientists create antimatter. Many scientists think that in the first few moments after the Big Bang, which created the universe a very long time ago, both matter and antimatter were mixing together. They are also wondering where the antimatter went... A parallel world might exists somewhere in the universe? #antimatter #cern #energy #matter

The marble quarries of Carrara in Italy are certainly a place for me to reflect on the impact of humanity on nature. It’s unbelievable to see how we have carved these mountains, how many layers we’ve created since thousands of years. We’ve for sure created master pieces of art with those rocks, but unfortunately not only. Through machinery and technology our impact is much bigger than ever and we have taken more rocks in the last 30 years than what we have taken in the last 1.000 years. Like never before, we need to be conscious of our impact and the risk to live in a high technological world and choose what we really need from our beautiful planet. I was here shooting for @m_magazine in the last days. #marble #anthropocene #quarries #carrara #planet #mountains

Sometime I wonder how the future will look like and I’m chasing places and stories where I can visually come near to some answers. Here are I’m in Calabria, beautiful region of Italy where plenty solar panels and wind farms have been installed. The planet is in crisis and to learn new ways to inhabit the earth is our biggest challenge. #climatechange #renewableenergy #solar #wind #2050 #materia #anthropocene #globalwarming

Flying over the Battersea Power Station in London during my assignment for @natgeo. The Battersea is a decommissioned coal-fired power station being redeveloped, aiming to become one of the new mixed-use destinations in London. Check my IG story to see the video of the flight on it. #batterseapowerstation #london #globalwarming #green #architecture #renewablenergy #gfx #gfx50s
