Born in Rimini in 1956, he
develops his first knowledge and experiences of the art's world
between the Roman Ruins, stacked up behind the Malatestian Dome, and
the sixteenth century seminary laid aside, where he preferred to
spend his free and meditative time.
The ancient building was crammed in every sort of
objects: statues, furniture, scientific and scholar instruments were
its interior decoration with the same senseless order as we can meet
in our funniest dreams. This place will put in motion his fancy and
reveals a new world, secret and mysterious, which he will decipher
signs and codes few years later than his fatal meeting with the
metaphysical De Chirico's paintings.
Artistic matters were his strong suit, attention inherited by his
family. From the first scholastic years he devotes himself to the
Arts, creating mosaics, sculptures and paintings. Than he attends
the Public Institue of Arts "Mengaroni" in Pesaro, where he
discovers the art of ceramics amongst the other disciplines. At the
same time he develops the knowledge of other artistic techniques
such as drawing and oil painting.
In 1971, during an exhibition in Milan entitled "The Objects
Metamorphosis" he meets the most celebrated De Chirico's painting
"The Disquieting Muses". This is the starting point which will make
him to take care of the metaphysical painting from that moment on,
recognizing throughout that painting his artistic mood,
unconsciously developped during his childhood.
After a study time spent to learn more about the techniques of oil
painting throughout the reproduction of some Twentieth Century
artist, he decides to dedicate himself only to the metaphysical
painting over a backwards course to the discovery of the most
suggestive places and environment according to De Chirico's
metaphysical painting time.
The most important place amongst them was no doubt "Villa del
Seminario"* close to Ferrara, where the artist has created some
copies of his "Metaphysical Creations" as a tribute to the Great
