In addition he has participated in numerous workshops held by: Guido Strazza, Giulia Napoleone, Lorenzo Bruno, Peter Willburger, Assadour and Henri Saunier. He collaborated with Strazza for an etching course held at Mercatello sul Metauro and with Napoleone for a course held at the University of Tenerife in the Canary Islands.
