Free-spirited and unwilling to accept labels, which fossilize imagination, Fabrizio Piscopo would not define himself as an artist. Instead, he sees himself as a cog in the communication mechanism, to which he contributes through his work, with the aim of enabling people to dream thanks to the images he creates.
Behind the lens is a photographer, and behind the photographer is experience. For Fabrizio, spontaneity comes before appearance, and pursuing innovation before following trends. In his constant search for inspiration, he wants to explore, feel and comprehend sensations, so that he can infuse and mold them in his shots. His intention is to understand the matter of which objects and people are made, and to shape it in his photos.
Fabrizio is passionate about beauty and fashion, two planets that orbit around objects made iconic by marketing and that effectively evoke the irrational dimension. Working within their orbits allows Fabrizio to express his imagination and passion through his work.

Fabrizio has always been interested in the world of communication, and constantly searched for means to express his inner emotions. He began working at age 14, while in high school, when he led the development and multimedia production of painter Carlo Mattioli’s website . The experience left him fascinated by the expressive strength of Mattioli’s work, and intrigued by the power of the visual language to spark emotions.
In 2004, he joined as a freelancer the editorial team of Gazzetta di Parma, the oldest daily newspaper in Italy, thus becoming its youngest collaborator. His experience as a journalist proved formative, and provided him with the opportunity to work alongside two friends who, over the years, would build prestigious careers in the photography world, and who inspired and oriented his own professional journey.
Over the course of his studies in Communications and Marketing, he completed his first professional photography assignment for a real estate company of national caliber. He then took part in Publitalia 80’s Master Degree Program in Advertising Communications (Mediaset Group) in Milan. In those years, he nourished his passion for photography by studying the work of masters like Peter Lindbergh, David LaChapelle, Steven Meisel and Richard Avedon, and by moving the first steps in the fashion photography field. Upon completing his master, after an internship with the Communications department of Nestlé Group, he finally embraced photography as the medium that would allow him to conjugate his passion for communications and his interest in marketing and advertising. He set up his own studio, becoming a preferred supplier to Nestlé Group. In the following years, he has collaborated with important brands in a vast range of industries: automotive, beauty, design, engineering, fashion, food, IT, hospitality and travel (Dallara, Vitality’s, Doosan, Illa, Giannini, Hotel Danieli in Venice).
In 2015, his work was showcased at the Palais des Festival de Cannes, during the 68th edition of the Cannes Film Festival. In private sessions, he portrayed celebrities like director Gabriele Muccino, Franc D’Ambrosio, Luca Parmitano, Rocco Siffredi, Jasmine Trinca, Riccardo Scamarcio, Vivetta, and Jon Mack. His campaigns were showcased in Rome, Milan and in international events such as Italy’s renowned Sanremo Festival (Banco Alimentare and Vitality’s campaigns). His editorial works are published in print and online magazines (Dreamingless, Kodd, Huf, Fruk). Fabrizio is also co-creator and director of a TV show dedicated to cinema, produced in collaboration with film critic Filiberto Molossi and aired during the last five editions of the Cannes and Venice Festivals.
He’s an active member of Rotary International, which awarded him with the Paul Harris Fellow recognition .

- 2019: foundation Ant, design and production of the charity’s calendar in partnership with Miss World - Italy .
Fabrizio loves travelling, experiencing new cultures and people. He especially loves the cosmopolitan and hectic life of New-York, from which he cannot stay away for more than two years.
“Photography has allowed me to visit breathtaking places around the world, and it has helped me better comprehend what I would have otherwise experienced only as a tourist: a never ending journey starting from emotions”.
