+ About  Marco Giovanni Stefanini

Marco Giovanni Stefanini was born in Berne in 1960.  Attracted by archaic forms of expression and prehistoric art, he studied in Rome and at the Fine Arts Academy in Bologna.  As a painter and sculptor Marco has exhibited extensively throughout Italy. His love of form naturally took him into the design world  and the day to day objects which could be created with natural materials such as wood, glass, stone and iron.  Marco’s involvement in the art and design community includes founder of the Interno Gallery for young artists, the design company Dum-Dum, partner and artistic director of the Art Cad Escando literary circle in Parma and most recently the Dilmos Gallery in Milan.

Marcos has also participated in design collaborations with companies such as Flo, the innovative lighting company.  The great versatility in the artistic life of Marco culminated in what he considers his ultimate masterpiece, the restoration of an aqueduct from 1915 which became the artist’s home and studio. The balance between raw material and artistic creation, and a sort of ethereal minimalism came together in what the French TV station TF1 describes as one of the worlds most exceptional homes, a thought echoed by several design magazines including Italy’s Interni.

In short, Marco’s body of work, his consistency and process of expression move him beyond trends and markets.  Marco’s pieces are made by the artist and are one of a kind.
