At age 12 I had already realized that drawing and painting were my companions of life. The sculpture came later to twenty years while studying at the academy. As a teenager I faced my way great artists of modern European painting by Magritte Miro, Max Ernest Morandi, performing copies in oil on canvas that then my father gave to friends and family. Subsequently the Academy of Fine Arts became my references Duchamp and Tinguely. Finally, like others of my generation, I suffered the charm of Joseph Beuys, in a typically German perspective and then wonderfully descriptive, has provided valuable guidance to many of the artists who started working in the eighties and nineties. My most important learning experiences But surely those were born next to the artists encountered along the way: as Sauro Cardinali, sensitive and valuable teacher, who followed me during the academic studies; or as Remo Salvadori that with his idea of infinite continuous this has contributed to the construction of a path that I have not yet abandoned. The brief meeting then with the father of 'happenings Allan Kaprow allowed me to better understand that false concept of death 'art and the end of utopias that has found fertile ground here in Europe, where the historical potential should instead indicate a completely different direction. Then I have to do one for all: Alberto Burri, who with his work remains an important point of reference that defines for me a measure of ethical value and artistic, from which I will not ignore.
