Luigi was born in 1966, September 28th, and he has Political Science degree. The use of black and white is the base of his creative work. The underlying theme is the search of beauty. A beauty that has always been fleeting and temporary. A beauty that, however, is mythical and regenerative when compared with the transience of human life and fragility of human certainties. The author draws reason to confront himself with the memory of man, or rather, to his tracks as Beauty, Time, Death and Faith. The Amphitheatres and the civic sense of sacred spaces, the links between art and faith, the search for ancient cultural identities, the comparison body with classical sculpture, the obsessive search of the sea, the need to define the idea of landscape through the passing hours, the boxes of dreamer archaeologist as, weaving stories and interlocking lives, they are the fieldworks of beauty. The artist’s obsession. In recent years he publishes “Rituals Portraits”, Federico Motta Editore (2006) and “The Beggar Prince”, Electa (2007).
