Vito Salvatore Di Paola


was born as the oldest of four children on April 6, 1958, in Centuripe, a 5,500-strong community on Sicily – the village that looks like a starfish when seen from above. At the age of 14, he moved to Germany with his parents. But while his family returned to Sicily a few years later, Vito Di Paola stayed in East Frisia and finished his professional training as wholesale and international trade specialist.


After a successful career as a buying agent for shoes (national/international) for Grave, Oldenburg, he started his independent work as a freelance agent in 1996. Striving for innovation and change still defines his professional life. Next to his work in the shoe business, photography has become one of his great passions.
