Insostenibili Leggerezze, an art exhibition by Stefano Zaratin & Maurizio Rossetto
Stefano Zaratin was born in 1972 in Mestre (Venice), the same town where he still lives and works today. After attending the Electric Engineering course at the University of Padua, he left his scientific education to start a personal artistic route. At the beginning of the ‘90s he dedicated himself to drawing and engraving at the “Scuola Internazionale di Grafica di Venezia” (International Graphics School of Venice). He later approached also sculpture and attended the course “Sculpture meets photography” at SommerAkademie of Salisburgo (Austria), where he prepared the ground for his later works with paper of the consecutive years. In 2001 he matriculated at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia (Fine Arts Accademy of Venice), and got his degree following the sculpture course held by prof. R. Pozzobon.
Maurizio Rossetto was born in Treviso in 1964. At the age of 14 years old he started his own working path at a metal workshop where he was dealing with mostly wrought iron. At 18 years old he left the job and iron as material for his creations, devoting himself to woodworking. When he was 30 he opened his atelier where he started creating furniture exclusively with solid wood, all pieces rich of hand carvings and marble embeddings. From over two decades he has produced sculptures in marble/wood/metal and ceramic compositions. His works are always unique and are individually attested and certified. His working experience lets him to know and appreciate the matter he then tries to shape.
