Welcome to our Instagramers blog Carlo, we are truly honored to have you on our Focus On Feature!Selfie Carlo Giardina

Hi everybody! I’m Carlo Alberto Giardina, alias FinnanoFenno.  My story begins in Milan, Italy when I decided to give up law’s studies to join to the faculty of communications science two years ago.

My Instagram story begins when I decided not only to start shooting photos, but also to draw on them with my finger. Just a finger, that’s all I need.  I use my iphone as an digital canvas and my finger as an atypical brush to link photography and drawings.

I like cars so much so I decided, as strangely as it sounds, to link cars and drawing. The result is a surreal world where fantasy and reality are mixed by the power of digital drawing.

Through my strange pics I want to remind us that “fantasy is just a figment of our reality”, and nothing more.


Thanks for your contribution to Focus On Carlo!


Here we go!
