The exceptional protagonist and perfect interpreter of these suggestions is Maria Grazia Cucinotta. Ferdinando Scianna was born in Sicily in 1943. Ferdinando Scianna was born in Sicily in 1943; he alternates between reportage, high fashion, advertising and portraits. He is thus established internationally, while also working as a journalist.
