Riccardo Sergnese is an Italian Rigger and Rope Artist. He co-teacher in the first Italian Bondage School, entitled to Itoh Seiyu and led by Stefano Laforgia. Also is the first Italian Rigger to be listed on Nawapedia.
“I started doing bondage for purely aesthetical purposes. Then I discovered the beauty of power exchange through rope. I do not focus on the pretty image any more. What I like is to create a deep connection with the model through the act of tieing.”

Balance
Models: Red and Nina

One of my earliest works and probably the one that had more success. I think that people like it because it really inspires balance and tranquility. I consider this more “fusion” than Shibari

Up and Down
Models: Red and Nina

I love partial suspension and inverse suspensions. I tried to put them together in a picture and this is what came out.

Abandonment
Models: Red

Inverted suspension is hard on the body. If you fight it you will lose, but if you abandon yourself to the ropes it gives fantastic feelings.

The Hole
Model: Red

I like the torsion of the torso in this picture. Together with the hole in the wall behind the model gives a great depth to the image

Cocoon
Model: Nina

Entrapping the whole body, slowly, knot by knot. For her was like slowly getting back in the womb.

Plastic
Model: Red

This picture was a challange for the model. It shows how much trust there must be between model and rigger.

Futomomo tsuri
Model: Nina

This kind of tie can be very stressing. I wanted to make it even harder for the model by adding a line than pulls arching her back.

Red in Red
Model: Red

This is a tough postion. The model needs to be very bendy, especially if you are not tieing only for aesthetical purpose but also for actual bondage play.
