Luca Giannini

Data and contact details

Luca Giannini (Bologna, 1972) attended the courses of painting, sculpture and engraving held by Tullio De Franco, Davide Dormino and Maria Pina Bentivenga at the RUFA Art Academy in Rome. His research, through different media, investigates the complexity of the relationship between man and nature: maps and books, amphorae and arks, islands and whales, planets and constellations emerge from corrosion, ashes, stratifications of pigments and narrate environmental conflicts, ancient and contemporary routes, lost knowledge, Mediterranean myths and celestial alchemy.
