A graduate of the Accademia dei Filodrammatici in Milan, he completed his theatrical training by completing studies with great personalities of contemporary theater, at anthropological theater institutes such as the Workcenter of Jerzy Grotowski and Thomas Richards and Eugenio Barba’sOdin Teatret.’
Since 2004, together with his wife Mara Risitano, they founded a new pedagogical method to train actors and performers, choosing to use theater also as a profound therapeutic tool, founding the Word Therapy courses that they have successfully taken throughout Italy and Europe.
As well as an actor, his passion and acquired technique led him, in 2013, to make his first film in the genre as an independent director entitled ‘The Vincisangue,’ which can be found on YouTube.
He began experimenting with photography, thanks to his passion and experience in the field of film, by capturing different situations that led him to generate photographs with an impressionistic taste and particular shots. He debuted as a photographer with a personal project titled ” Hastaglavista” in the Open Art House gallery. Project that stays in constant development and growing , being enriched with new shots all the time.
Project that can be seen on his instagram page @matteo.mo Art project that was taken to MIAFAIR 2021 by OAH.

Presented as a premiere at MIAFAIR 2022 are the portraits of Cain, Job, Adam and Eve, and Ruth. His passion , curiousity, strong imagination and the poetic drive him in constant photo research and sperimentation.
