From 2014 to 2018 I collaborated with several private companies in the field of cataloging. I have carried out cataloging work on examples from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, as well as modern and periodical printed texts. Over the year I have carried out numerous cataloging and inventory recovery interventions at various public and private libraries throughout the country.
The passion for rare and ancient books led me above all to the world of collecting, collaborating with various antique bookstores and numerous private individuals on national and international territory.
I carry out evaluations, researches, acquisitions and authentications of the book heritage and / or rare and valuable texts, documents and antique prints. This new assignment takes me around Italy and the world in search of copies or for commissions from bookstores and bibliophiles.

In 2020 I work for an American bibliophile to research the very rare 1597 edition of Henning Grosse: Magica De Spectris et Apparitionibus spirituum. of Between 2021 and 2022 I researched and purchased on behalf of a French collector some very rare editions of occult texts such as the Malleus Maleficarum edition of 1519, the Démonomanie des Sorciers by Jean Bodin of 1580, the Compendium Maleficarum by Francesco Maria Guaccio of 1608 and the 1633 edition of Martin del Rio's Disquisitionum Magicarum.
