Pietro Ruffo was born in Rome in 1978, where he went on to study architecture. His work analyses the key themes of universal history, classifying them by their semantic and linguistic levels. Birth and death, past and future, order and chaos, stability and transformation; everything is part of his circular vision of the universe, reduced to the chemistry of the elements, highlighting the diversity and complexity of the human race. During this process of analysis, Ruffo uses various techniques that are conceived as real research tools that "scan" reality in order to establish connections and synthesise trains of thought. In the purest Italian tradition, he is able to move freely between drawing, large installations and video. This multidisciplinary approach allows him to focus on all aspects of the universe that are not immediately visible .
He has exhibited at the Lorcan O'Neill gallery in Rome, but also at the Maxxi museums in Rome, MAD / Museum of Arts and Design in New York, the MACRO in Rome, Luigi Pecci Center of Contemporary Art in Prato, MAR Ravenna Museum of Art, at the Moscow Biennale, in China and in various other public institutions.
