Born in Narni (Terni) [ITALY] on the 15th March 1970, Martino
Fani gets an Art degree in 1987 at the Art Institute “Orneore Metelli” in
Terni, where he graduates two years later. He gets a Preservation of the
Artistic Heritage degree, with a particular attention to Modern History and
Art. He is particularly interested in the History of Renaissance Art.
In the early part of his production he produces studies over the work of some Renaissance and Mannerist artists. He lives and works in Orte, in the north of Lazio.
This is what he thinks of painting: “…a picture is a key that opens the door of our sensibility, but not all pictures manage to do that. It is up to us hiding our lock.”
Talking about his seascapes and landscapes he says: “they have a ring of truth, yet they are not material places, I expect them to be places of souls, of my soul at least.”
