  • Third place in the column category at the “World Balloon Convention 2018” San Diego;
  • Third place in the column category at the “Globo-con 2019” Los Angeles.

His curriculum is enriched by works for major national brands, collaborations with local authorities and professionals in the events sector and Event Planners.

To date, the Balloon Artist possesses knowledge and techniques, which combined with his creativity, lead him to the creation of unique, original and innovative settings. But his greatest achievement occurs in the field of training, teaching throughout Italy and in the largest world conferences, becoming a world Pioneer instructor (Qualatex).

In 2019, in Naples, he founded his own Balloon Art academy, the "PopoArt Academy", which became a point of reference for all his students scattered across the peninsula.
