3.ultracelestia project

Since 2021 

Collab: Gregorio Poggetti (graphic designer)

Started as a A5 Format super cool fanzine, Ultracelestia soon became a collaborative and experimental project.
Each copy of Ultracelestia fanzine is unique, packaged in a special envelope, hand binded with a fragment of an original manga page. Every release has its own envelope and a set of stickers. 

UltraCelestia’s narration is a combination of illustrations, visual references and feelings heavily influenced by Japanese sci-fi and cyberpunk mangas and animes, where energy and emotions often have a physical form.



In 2023 Ultracelestia project became a workshop
  • Ultraexpress 23.09.2023 at MAO Museum of Oriental Art in Turin
After a brief introduction to the world of fanzines full of visual examples, participants explore the Museum in search of inspiration for the production of their own content. Every creative form is welcome, from traditional painting to AI generators. The images and texts produced will be digitally laid out, printed and bound. 
At the end of the day each participant takes home their customized copy of UltraExpress Fanzine in A5 format.
We offer workshops in italian and english, designed for different targets and situations (festival, institutions, schools, etc...). 

Feel free to contact us if you need a workshop on an on-demand basis. We can also put together tailor-made workshops if you have special wishes.

My story, "Ultrafragola", opens the third volume: the narration is a sci-fi hentai set in present-day Milan, in which the protagonist Rocco lives a sensual and spiritual love with a famous 70’s design mirror, which seems to have more soul than the humans reflected in it.

Four-month exhibition at the Museum of Oriental Art of Turin (MAO) with an environmental installation made up of 10 paper banners with a total length of 28 meters hanging from the ceiling. The work is a tribute to the manga/anime characters that have shaped my aesthetics and art practice.

“Spin me round” is a digital exhibition of 360° panorama photos shot by t-space studio in collaboration with 5 artists.

My photo was taken in the only park I was allowed to go to during the 2020 lockdown, I am the only human there and above me I drew a demon whose wing was torn off.






12. curatorial practice


I’m the founder of /77, an artist-run space based in Milan, active from 2015 to 2018, successfully curating a series of exhibitions and events across Milan, London, and Lugano. 

/77 was the Italian reference point for artists who, once they graduated from art school, wanted to create bold, anti-commercial or controversial works of art. 
/77 shaped the aesthetics and mindset of a generation, promoting art projects that were too risky or innovative for galleries or museums.
