Maurizio Nannucci was born in Florence in 1939. He lives and works in Florence and in southern Germany.
Maurizio Nannucci is one of the leading figures of the international artistic scene of the last few decades. He focuses on a profound reflection on the relationships between Art, language and society.
After experimenting with concrete poetry and electronic music, he starts a personal research assembling different materials and methods of production such as neon lights, photography, sound installations, editions and artist’s books. Nannucci is one of the first to experiment with the combination of neon light to create an analysis of the communication phenomena, as well as to establish a new perception of the spatial context in which the work is exhibited. Within the framework of the conceptual search of the time, his endeavor aims at unifying the formal/aesthetic perspective of the artwork and an analytical viewpoint through the introduction of a socio political trend of thoughts.
