ALESSIO MAZZARO  

 

Alessio Mazzaro has an multidisciplinary practice, influenced by an interest towards tales and communities he doesn’t belong to. His work is based on a strong interest for the question of dialogue, learning and acceptance. Many of his pieces started from the concept of trace, and the relation we have to traces, in memory and oral history.
