VITTORIO CARVELLI
     
© Copyright Vittorio Carvelli 2016
Vittorio Carvelli specialises in depictions of the young male nude, and has recently launched a new project centring round his fictional character, Gnaeus Octavius Gracchus, a fabulously wealthy Roman Patrician and owner of a private gladiatorial arena, and a 'stable' of attractive young 'slave boys'. Most of Carvelli's images have a strongly 'Classical' ambience.
