Emmanuele is an Italian artist. Mostly self-taught.

Despite his artistic inclination, he graduated in aerospace engineering worked as structural engineer in several Countries for nine years. During that time, he continued drawing frantically in the spare time, at night, and took drawing classes in Madrid and then basics of oil painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Como (Italy).

In recent times Emmanuele tried watercolor and then chose it as his favorite medium of expression. Emmanuele likes putting impressions and mood on paper and is trying to develop an impressionistic and personal style.

Emmanuele is member of the Italian Watercolor Society (AIA) and Watercolorists Association of Rome. He won twice the Bold Brush Painting Competition (ed. November 2014 and December 2015) and taught watercolor approach at the School of Art Francesco Fontana in Milan


Watercolour School

Emmanuele teaches watercolour technique in his own Art Studio based in Florence. He’s available for personal and group classes. He also organizes daily outdoor painting demo and workshop in Florence.
