Giorgio Casari was born in Pavia in 1962 and moved to Florence in 1967. He began painting in 1977, independently for one year, then through individual drawing and painting lessons at painter Renzo Dotti’s studio, as well as under the mentorship of Art Historian, Carlo Del Bravo. In the same period, he attended afternoon drawing classes at the Free Academy of the Nude, where he met two young German artists, from whom he received important insipiration in his own artistic development. From here, the idea was born to travel to Germany to study art in 1981. After receiving his high school diploma in scientific studies in 1982 he moved to West Berlin, where in October of that year he began his studies at Hochschule der Künste, the Academy of Fine Arts, under the direction of Prof. Marwan. In 1986 he travelled to the USA for six months, working and painting in New York and San Francisco. In 1988 he graduated from the West Berlin Academy of Fine Arts and in 1992 he returned to Italy and went to live and paint in the Tuscan countryside in Chianti, at S. Donato in Poggio. In 1996 he moved to Rome where he currently lives and works.
