Maurizio Sani.

Maurizio Sani was born in Empoli (FI) in 1955 .He lives and works in Poggibonsi (Siena). In the 70s he attended the painting and drawing school of the Municipality of Certaldo directed by Maestro Tosi.

Since then a deep passion for everything related to painting and drawing has taken over the young Sani. In the 1970s, he participated in numerous awards and collectives that perfected both his expressiveness and technique. Sani uses the language of painting to explore new experiences and creates works with a subtle sense of humor. He takes inspiration from ordinary objects and situations but by depicting them he gives them a special note.

In his artworks there is a balance between irony and lightheartedness, tones that combine perfectly with a touch of melancholy.

Between bars and hangouts, I prefer my studio (let's call it that) I spend a lot of my day there painting between memories and old wrecks from which I take inspiration for my works, combining them with pleasant places where I often go to observe the nature that there gives these wonderful landscapes that change their appearance from week to week. I paint for most of my day so time flies away between brushes, colors and things from the past. My works go around the world where they are especially appreciated by those who are attracted by a great passion; (the car) are currently on display at Luzzago Art Gallery (Brescia) and in other galleries in Italy.


Here then is that he transforms his world into a pictorial gesture. It is enough to enter his studio to realize how much his ironic painting is a unique whole with the individual.

Maurizio Sani paints with joy in a studio-garage where cars, motorcycles, Vespas and Lambrettas are stacked and lovingly collected even in disastrous conditions, memories of an ancient past, and recovered from neglect. In this garage-studio you see a tripod with Maurizio behind him who, with the “Toscanello” in his mouth, puts his dreams on the canvas: to ride those motorcycles, to race with those cars in impossible races attended by ironic and politely naive characters.
