Luca Vitone

His artistic practice which began in the second half of the 1980s is concerned with the idea of place and invites us to re-learn something we already know, challenging the conventions of faded memory that characterize the present. Vitone's work explores the way in which spaces are identified through cultural productions: art, cartography, music, food, architecture, political associations and ethnic minorities. He resolves the difference between the sense of loss of place that accompanies the postmodern experience and the methods in which a sense of belonging comes from the intersections of personal and collective memory and reconstructs and invents forgotten paths that are reunited into a personal geography.

Since 2006 he has taught in the three-year sculpture course at the Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan.
