(Coassolo Torinese 1882 – Turin 1962)
A magistrate by profession and a passionate photo amateur, he adopted obsolete techniques, like bromoil and fat inks, and bore witness to the photography scene in the 1920s where painting solutions were adopted to avoid more commercialized photography. During the 1930s he took part in national and international salons on a regular basis. His pictures, which were well-known, were published in catalogues, annuals, books, and sector magazines. A theorist of photography aesthetics, he also edited numerous essays on the topic as well as booklets and legal writings on cinema and photography.
