Italo Zuffi

Italo Zuffi was born in Imola in 1969. Zuffi graduated from Accademia di Belle Arti of Bologna in 1993 (Diploma in Painting), and from Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design of London in 1997 (Master of Arts). In 2001 he was awarded the Wheatley Bequest Fellowship in Fine Art at the Institute of Art & Design of Birmingham (GB). He presently teaches Performance Techniques and Sculpture Techniques at Accademia di Belle Arti of L'Aquila. Since 2011 he is Visiting Lecturer in Performance at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (NL). He works with performance, sculpture, and writing to 'explore subtle states of vulnerability, and express the prudence of a person in a hostile environment who turns his or her gaze like a window on the world, resorting to inner experience as in a change of state, collapse, or combustion' (Chiara Chelotti, 1999). As of October 2016, Italo Zuffi has been appointed as a contract professor and studio leader for the STUDIO INTERACT (Theory and Practice of the Performing Body) within the BA Major in Art at the Faculty of Design and Art of the Free University of Bolzano.
