He has been the protagonist in national tours, spanning from works of classical theater (Shakespeare; Molière) to those of literature (The Odyssey; Orlando Furioso), from characters of religious iconography (Jesus; Saint Francis) to shows on contemporary and social themes.

With Mauro Pirovano, he taught drama art in theater courses at the Cassini Institute in Genoa. He then dedicated himself to rediscovering the heritage of dialectal theater tradition, acting in plays from the repertoire of Gilberto Govi.
