Matteo is a self-taught oil painter who was born in a small town in central Italy. He has been based in Tokyo since 2009. Among his collectors are members of the Royal Family, Hollywood A-List celebrities, diplomats, listed companies and famous personalities and CEOs.


Enamored by the excellence of the Renaissance, Matteo is a polymath who applies himself to numerous disciplines with the sole aim of creating the finest art possible. He prepares the boards, colors, and frames himself, ensuring that beauty and perfection are at the foundation of his works. These elements are his language for communicating with a wide audience, regardless of age or nationality, transcending time and culture.

“Fusion of old techniques with modern technologies. This is my vision of Fine Arts.”

Matteo is proud to uphold the Italian painting traditions established during the Renaissance. He creates harmonious and realistic paintings, rich in metaphor, that are inspired by the Great Masters. At the same time, he is fascinated by modern technology and its possibilities. He uses CAD engineering software to design the frames for his own paintings, and he employs computer graphics to create original environments from his imagination. In this way, he merges tradition with modernity in his work.
