Luca Monterastelli was born in Forlimpopoli in 1983. He studied at Fine Art Brera Academy of Milan. The artist develops works on the propaganda function of sculpture and architecture. Through the study of all the forms that make up the urban geography, his work re-proposes parallel realities in which events follow each other and where the final installation is the memory. In these traces and stories, we see the direct influences of all those celebratory systems studied and reinvented by the artist so that these worlds become a mirror of our vision.
