Cigo began his advertising career as an Art Director, working for Young&Rubicam NYC, Ogilvy&Mather Italy and Pirella Gottsche Lowe International. He then left behind art direction and devoted himself full time to photography where he created a prolific portfolio of prestigious national and international advertising campaigns. Looking for yet another new challenge, he brought together his love of cinema and food by debuting as a director for Zero Table Top in 2012. His high impact images bring together his years of experience working in analogue photography and wealth of knowledge and technical ability regarding lighting. Maurizio's confident use of the hand-held-camera, combined with his adroit use of high-speed and motion​ control techniques seal his style, capturing "real" moments and poetry at the same time.
