In 2008, Luca began to collaborate with international NGOs focused on children's issues.
After many years in advertising and fashion, this new opportunity provided the possibility to rethink his role and quest as photographer, leading him to take on social justice and environmental projects.
The Children of China was the first book, in collaboration with Aletha Gold, published in conjunction with the 2008 Olympic Games. All profits continue to be donated to children with HIV in orphanages in the Henan province of China.
The book project The Children of South Africa was initiated to raise funds to help upgrade sports facilities for over 18,000 children suffering from HIV/AIDS in 6 townships in South Africa. 100% of the profits are donated to Maafrila Tikkun. The book was launched during the 2010 Fifa World Cup.
Luca published the book The Children of Israel, where all the revenues and royalties generated went to Keren–Hayesod funding the Nurit Absorption Center. This center serves as a first home for many Ethiopian families.
He created and launched his digital magazine: l'Enfanterrible, dedicated to children's fashion, art, travel, and design. With each edition, the magazine brings new talents and collaborations in order to be more inclusive.

An exhibition with Luca‘s photographs and videos was held at the
UN Headquarters in New York in occasion of the International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation on February 6th.
Luca worked on a project with Dutch university students that were Extinction Rebellion activists. This project took portraits of rebels from various backgrounds and eco-philosophies, and paired these images with their thoughts on Extinction Rebellion and the Climate Crisis.
The FGM exhibition traveled to Geneva and was displayed at the UN Compound.
Along with 40 other professional photographers, Luca participated in the collective project DOGVILLE 2020 to document the empty squares of Italy during the lockdown.
