Stefano D'acunto.

Born in Turin on January 2, 1973, he received his first artistic training at the Gobetti Marchesini institute for advertising graphics.

His education received an abrupt halt in 1990 when, following constant differences with the teachers, he left the institute. He will no longer resume "academic" studies. This choice will lead him to embark on an individual artistic path characterized by a profound comparison with the greats of the Renaissance, Mannerism and Italian Baroque who will define the typical characters of his pictorial art.

In the nineties he executed many wall works in the center of Turin for various private clients.

In 1998, due to a strong artistic crisis, he moved from Turin to Buccino, a small town in the province of Salerno, his family's country of origin. The parish priest commissions the painting of the Holy Immaculate Conception from the young artist, now preserved in the church of Santa Croce in Buccino. Subsequently he begins a fruitful collaboration with the local diocese that will see him decorate the vault of the Sanctuary of the S.S. Immaculate and various decorations in the Mother Church always in Buccino. Recently he painted the apse wall and the arches of the new church in the municipality of Romagnano al Monte (SA). In 2001 he opened his own workshop located in the historic center until 2019.

He currently works in his studio in Cosenza where he realizes his works.
