Born in Scandicci in 1943, Paolo Staccioli approaches the art world in the seventies, when he begins to exhibit his painting in the Florentine environment.
At the beginning of the nineties, the need to experiment with new expressive languages pushed him to Faenza, where he refined the techniques of the art of ceramics.
His ceramics, with a strong metallic effect and sparkling enamel, soon impose themselves, for their elegance and originality, in the artistic panorama no longer only in Florence, but in the national one.
Over the years, Staccioli, following his well-established sculptural vocation, devoted himself to exploring the formal properties of bronze, a material that, like ceramic, finds perfect correspondence with the formal, synthetic and stylistic layout of his creations.
Among his most recent personal exhibitions, he remembers "In the ancient belly of the palace. Exercises of war and children's games", held in the Sala d'Arme of Palazzo Vecchio in Florence in 2021.
