Spring in Milan is a skilful play of superimpositions, of images that fuse together so as to offer to the eyes of the audience a picture recalling a painting. While admiring the photo, one cannot fail to  perceive the smell of a gloomy spring in Milan; the sky, of an extraordinary light grey, outlines the contours of the trees, clashing with the strong green and touching the ground.
Davide Biagi discovered photography while he was at high school, taking part in an experimental course and then his hobby became an object of study: he specialized following the lessons of the photojournalist Angelo Tondini and attending courses at Circolo Fotografico Milanese. Attracted to nature since childhood, the artist considers Trentino Alto Adige his second home, so in 2013 he decided to dedicate himself mainly to naturalistic photography. In this field he experimented personal methods and styles, remaining however true to the famous figures of landscape photography, whose teachings Biagi learned in the numerous workshops he attended, such as those of Marco Colombo and Marcello Libra. With patience and dedication Biagi began to travel around Italy, especially in Trentino where he filmed landscapes, but he also experimented wildlife photography and the avifauna. The artist affirmed: “Landscape and fauna are my favourite genres, but I do not disdain the macro genre and the motion blur”. Once he had enhanced his style, in 2014 he set up near Trento his first photography exhibition called Visioni e riflessioni (Sights and reflections), where he exhibited the landscapes of that region. As a consequence, he obtained a lot of visibility and in 2015 he was awarded in Naples at the national contest Illustrare la nature (Illustrating nature) in the category of landscape photography; in 2016 he was a finalist at the international contest Oasis in the category Mammals, and in June the artist was recognized as a young talent on D, insert of Repubblica.
