1954 Born in Locarno, TI (CH)

He graduated from art school in Lugano.

THE ARTIST
From an in-depth study of the figure, his artistic development passed through an informal stage.He loves living in contact with nature, with animals, with silence, and with music, which always accompanies him while working.

He travelled and lived abroad in Copenaghen and London, and in 1990 he moved definitively to Italy. He has visited Greece, the Middle East, experimented, analysed, elaborated, and in the 1990's there was the
turning point: from an informal style, he finally introduced " his figuration".

ALTERED PERSPECTIVES
Plants that are apparently familiar but actually inexistent, altered perspectives, reversals, altars, prisms, walls, pools, architectural
constructions, are elements that the artist uses to lure us into his visions
"beyond time and space", an invitation to accept his provocative
interrogative:
if we saw what was not true?
If reality were only apparent?
If truth were concealed?

He asks us to reflect by rigorously using images, only by means of painting.

He does not impose answers nor expects acceptance of his message. With absolute mastery of technique, with his "trade", with only the aid of painting, he proposes his research that confirms the essence of his work as a man and an artist.

A message that, due to its universality, is welcomed by the public and critics on an international level.
Raffaello talks:

"… I've always liked "isolating myself" in order to ponder life and , certain "panoramas" have represented extremely significant moments for me. Deep silences, absolute emptiness, in which I have discovered fullness and completeness. These reflections have often projected me into a dimension "outside space and outside time" in visions which everything seems but in reality is not, in which the colours are altered, the images distant and the memories confused and detached from their temporal linearity. In these cases the perspectives are completely distorted and you realise that everyday ones are too: a different point of view is sufficient to change the entire field of vision… and yourself. These are the moments that I have chosen to represent in my work, these situations detached from time, space and the limits imposed on us by everyday life..."
