Andrea is a contributor to The New York Times Magazine and to National Geographic.
He grew up in Milan, where he studied art and architecture. One week after his graduation, he took a flight to the Amazon Forest, following a small NGO, where he realized his first photo story. Since then, he decided to devote himself entirely to photography using it as a means for discovery and story-telling. He started traveling and worked on several photo reportages, mainly in Africa, South America, and the Mediterranean area. He has worked on personal projects and assignments in more than 60 countries around the world.
His work has been published in magazines such as National Geographic, The New York Times, Newsweek, New York Magazine, The Times, Bloomberg Businessweek, The Guardian, Der Spiegel, GEO, and Vanity Fair.
