Luciano's career in photography began in the Italian Navy as a naval photographer on board of the oceanographic boat "Stafetta".
Next, he collaborates with the photographic agency "Attualfoto", taking care of Formula One and Rallies services.
From 1983 to 1990, Luciano traveled as a member of the mobile troop of the Italian television program "Jonathan", presented by Ambrogio Fogar. During this time, Luciano's colleagues jokingly referred to him as "The nomad with the camera".
Throughout his 20 years as a documentary film-maker, Luciano collaborates to the realization of more than 30 documentaries or films for Italian and foreign television and important photographic services.
In 1996, Luciano won one of the most prestigious photographic contests in the world. Out of 36,454 total entries from 53 different countries, Luciano's image of an Ethiopian tribesman and tribeswoman was awarded the Grand Prize in the Nikon International Photo Contest!
