GIORGIO RADICATI<br />

Italy<br />

<strong>The</strong> Italian diplomat Giorgio Radicati has<br />

always cultivated his passion for the visual<br />

arts and writing, whilst advancing his political<br />

career.<br />

Years of living in the world’s leading cities as<br />

a diplomat, representing his native country<br />

to foreign audiences, caring for immigrant<br />

populations and celebrating life in varied<br />

languages and cultures, have shaped Radicati’s<br />

world-view and artistic sensibility.<br />

Radicati’s involvement in the Acrylic Melody<br />

initiative is due to his love for and time spent<br />

working in Africa, where he initiated several<br />

cooperative aid programs in many states<br />

of the continent, including Zimbabwe and<br />

Mozambique.<br />

Since discovering his artistic vein, Radicati<br />

has gone from a purely figurative style to<br />

an abstract-informal style via the use of,<br />

mainly, acrylic and mixed media techniques.<br />

<strong>The</strong> prolific artist has exhibited in both solo<br />

and group exhibitions –in Italy, Turkey, Czech<br />

Republic and the U.S.— as well as published<br />

various articles, essays and books.<br />

<strong>The</strong> artwork donated on behalf of the<br />

artist: Composizione Musicale (Musical<br />

Composition), is a striking visual ensemble<br />

that functions as a relic or testament and<br />

ode to music and art from a modern though<br />

nostalgic perspective.<br />
