I was born in Sicily, in Barcelona (Me) in 1974, and I was lucky enough to have a peaceful upbringing in which I developed the interest in art through books and many of Italy visited museums. This interest was transformed immediately into the pleasure of acquiring the technology and craftsmanship that made me re-create the things I saw. I attended engineering in Messina where I found myself immediately surrounded by the creative ferment of the Young Italian Artists Circuit. Artistically formative years from the first participation in the Prize 'Lights & Shadows' chaired by Ettore Sottsass with Laura Giugiaro and Piero Gilardi, curated by Guido Curto in 1998 at Lingotto in Turin until international project Gemini Muse in 2004. After graduation I did a Master of Industrial Design in Palermo and since then I try to create objects of design, industrial or craft, with strong hints of art. The concepts of my products are visible in matcalabro.tumblr.com tumblr blog.
