has long expressed his passion for Schnauzers through his art.
Not by chance most of his works were undertaken during the time when he
was without a Schnauzer and waiting for dog (1985-88). It was a way to
make his desires become material.
Alessandro taught Italian and history in a
high school outside of Torino, but has always liked and even found it necessary
to express his enthusiasm for the Schnauzer breeds through their image
by using pencil or paintbrushes, ink or clay, camera or computer in order
to realize poster, murals, strips and little statues.
His works include contributions to The Schnauzer
Club Italiano's magazine with drawings and comic strips and as illustrator
for the book "In Compagnia dello Schnauzer" by Maria Bergamini Vestuti,
Ed. Olimpia - Firenze, 1993 edition.

in 1950, he has matched art with social-politic care, sharing Piero
Gilardi and Pietro Perotti’s ideas, during seventies and eighties, with
whom he cohoperated. He was the cartoonist of enquiry magazine “La
pagina. Dentro i fatti del saluzzese” (“The page. Inside
the facts of Saluzzo). He never exhibited, but his thought on art, carried
him to create aesthetic-political-social actions involving actively the
pubblic. In 2000, he created the idea of “Artisti al muro” (“Artists
at wall”) with Spazioarte (Artspace): posters inspired from antifascism
values, produced by artists and affixed in advertisement spaces of some
town near Cuneo. In 2007 he founded “Arti vaganti” (“Wondering arts”)
