A painter and poet, Carlo was born in Cesena, Italy. He went to school in Sansepolcro, the birthplace of Piero della Francesca and he studied at the University of Pisa.
His professional career is positioned at the crossroads of several artistic movements. In 1990, he began to paint under the influence of surrealism. From 1992 to 2001, he became the editor of an art magazine called Sinopia, he joined the Artistic Movement of Versilia (MAV) and he participated in many events in the Tuscan region.
In 2004, Carlo devoted himself fully to painting. His different travels in Europe allowed him to tackle the world of international contemporary art and in 2009 he exhibited at the Milan Triënnale and the Ferrero d’Alba Foundation.
Poetry marks the rhythm of Carlo’s artworks. His colourful universe recalls the surrealist peculiarities of René Magritte (Belgian painter, twentieth century) and even some themes are common to both artists, including the cloud, a symbolic metaphor for dreams.
The artist depicts objects, animals or characters on a clean and generally uniform background. The subject, mainly painted with oil on canvas, is presented outside its usual context: diverted from its primary function, it is considered simply for its aesthetic and poetic properties. The artist constructs his canvas like a puzzle: every detail is carefully thought out and created, and contributes to the harmony of the whole. The composition opens into an infinite space where fantasy and reality merge.
