Alessandro Rampazzo, Italian photojournalist, born in 1986.
I started working as professional in 2010 in a local newspaper. After some months I decided to leave local stories to experiment the international context. I decided to move to Tunisia first, and than to Egypt to cover the so called Arab Spring. In the last two years I have been working mainly in North Africa region with stories focused on the aftermath of the revolution mainly in Tunisia and Egypt. There I have been working also in the news for a while, covering elections, demonstrations, second/third revolutions and a part of the process of post revolution. I've worked also in Greece, Patras, with the sub-Saharan immigrants looking for a better life in Europe. After two years of international stories I decided to come back to Italy to work in my home land for some time. Here I focused mainly on society stories related to the changes.
In 2014 I've been working in Brazil on environmental and social stories, and in Albania on a long term project related with the culture of the revenge.
