Simone Filosi was born in Perugia in 1978. In 1997, after completing his scientific maturity, he met marble and its mystery. The young artist senses and recognizes the secret power contained in matter. The mystery of the sleeping form in the marble block, a mystery of possible beauty that awaits to be freed and given birth and entrusted to the world by the wise hands of Man. The call is too strong, Simone begins training at a laboratory in his city.
He later moved to Carrara, graduating from the "PIETRO TACCA" institute: he began to learn about sculpture techniques, perfecting himself in the historic laboratories of Carrara and Pietrasanta, where the great artisans and master sculptors possessing ancient knowledge and experience have always worked: to name a few, "Laboratorio Costa Paolo & sons" in Carrara; "Umberto Togni" laboratory; "Sem" studio in Pietrasanta.
In this period he realizes many works for his hometown, including the monument to John Paul II at the Santa Misericordia hospital in Perugia; an imposing Crucifix at the hermitage of Colle San Paolo; a monument to glass working in the Municipality of Piegaro, and many others. He also creates, in collaboration with other artists, various monuments including, in particular, two monuments in honor of the King of Thailand at the Mahidol College in Bangkok.
Simone Filosi works on the void. This dilated space is clothed by sculpture.
This is the sign of Simone Filosi's art. This is the sign of all love. It is true Art, it is true Love, only what frees you, what leads you to be True.
