Biography

Born in Cagnano Amiterno (L’Aquila) in 1954, Nunzio lives and works between Rome and Turin. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, graduating in Scenography at Toti Scialoja courses. His debut on the art scene took place in 1980 with the creation of plasters painted by immersion, consisting of two or more elements placed in relation to each other and mounted directly to the wall as paintings. In the mid-80s he abandoned the plaster in favor of blowtorch-burned wood, lead and metal sheets. The blackened surfaces after the combustion as well as the folded metal plates absorb the light creating a strong dialogue between matter and space. Since the 90s Nunzio also approached pastel and mixed technique drawing, elaborating evocative abstract forms that often prelude to his sculptural production in which he also experiments the use of bronze.

In 1984 the exhibition “Ateliers”, curated by Achille Bonito Oliva at the former Cerere bakery in via Degli Ausoni in Rome, marked the founding of the group “La Nuova Scuola Romana” counting as members Marco Tirelli, Nunzio, Piero Pizzi Cannella, Bruno Ceccobelli and Giuseppe Gallo. Nunzio has ben exhibiting his works in personal shows in prestigious institutions such as: Museo Riso, Palermo and Pinacoteca d’Arte Contemporanea, Teora, Avellino (2016), Museum Biedermann, Donaueschingen (2012), Italian Cultural Institute, San Francisco and Museum of Contemporary Art, Belgrade (2006), MACRO, Rome (2005), Galleria d’Arte Moderna, Bologna (1995), Galleria Civica, Modena (1987).

Among the collectives exhibitions in institutions: The Parkview Museum, Singapore (2018), Villino Favaloro, Palermo (2015), MART, Rovereto (2009), Villa Medici, Rome (2007), European Parliament, Brussels (2003), Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig, Vienna (1991), Centre National d’Art Contemporain, Nice (1985). Nunzio took part in important international events, such as: Venice Biennale (1995, 1993, 1986), Rome Quadriennale (1996, 1986), Sydney Biennial (1986). His collaboration with Galleria Fumagalli began in 2000 with the opening of a personal exhibition and the publication of a catalog with a text by Marco Meneguzzo.
