His moving to Milan in 1954 has above all been significant for his meeting with personalities like Enrico Baj, Sergio Dangelo, Lucio Fontana.

The artist taught at Stanford University and the University of California at Berkeley and later traveled in the United States.

To convey a mechanism of destruction and regeneration, he chooses gigantic architectonic pieces combining the basic geometric shapes such as cubes, spheres, columns, pyramids and discs. The artist currently lives and works in Milan.
