One of his main strengths and key to success lies in the endless desire to look for new views, to turn his gaze to little-known locations to enhance them and to demonstrate that photography is a way of feeling, of orienting one's life driven by passion that stimulates creativity.

Roberto can also be defined a true traveler, passionate of arctic landscapes of Scandinavia, he organizes workshops every year in Norway and Finland but also in the rest of Europe.
