Matteo was born in Livorno, Italy, in 1977. His work springs both from an ironic introspective analysis and from an observation of the surrounding reality, which focalizes particularly on mankind.
‘Everything starts simply from a heard word, song or circumstance. I chew it, I swallow it, I assimilate it and then I spit it out in the shape of a complex, well-structured story, made of faded colors and worn out frames, populated by characters (heroes) that are free from rhetoric and heroic hints, often defeated by life or by their very greatness. That’s why in my imagination I use to call them fameless super heroes.’
