Stefano believes that the most beautiful moments in shibari occurs, when the rigger and the model are working both with and for each other.
It’s through this unique connection, erotic tension and total power exchange that the complete symbiosis between the two expresses shibari in its purest form.
Stefano is a leatherman, rigger, sadist, edge player and BDSM educator.
His approach to shibari changed and matured with time, enhancing the connection between rigger and bottom, and found a cleared definition after a series of trips to Japan starting from 2008, where he had the chance to meet, watch and learn with some of the best kinbakushi.
In 2011 he organized the first BDSM float during the Europride Roma, and later the same year he both created the event LegArti, with some international riggers, and founded the first School of Japanese Bondage in Italy, named after Itoh Seiyu (www.scuoladibondage.it). In 2013 he created his own brand of ropes (www.ultimatebondagerope.com) as well as the Alcova Kink Academy, and in 2014 he conceived and organized the first edition of the Rome BDSM Conference.
He has presented workshops and classes in Italy, Europe and United States in some of the top events and locations as Kink.com, The Floating World, Bondage Expo Dallas, APEX, kinkacademy.com, London Festival of the Art of Japanese Bondage, Ropefest, Moscow Knot, Boundcon, EURIX.
