BIOGRAPHY

Emilio Ferro (1988) is an Italian artist whose works investigate the perception of light and space through museum installations and projects designed for natural environments. 

In 2010, after completing the three-year course in Design at IED in Turin, Emilio Ferro moved to Berlin to complete his training. In the same year he received a special mention at M.Y.D.A. (Millennium Yacht Design Award) and began working with MANASAS as Lighting Designer. Starting from 2012 he consolidated his collaboration with MANASAS, becoming a partner and developing lighting projects, with particular attention to architectural lighting. 

He is a member of AIDI (Italian Lighting Association) and to date he has supervised and collaborated over 500 lighting projects to date in Italy and abroad. 

Furthermore, from 2020, he is supported by the team of STUDIO STUDIO STUDIO, the interdisciplinary project founded by Edoardo Tresoldi to create and support contemporary artistic projects. 

For several years he has been pursuing his own independent poetics that feed an artistic language capable of blending light, sound and visual arts, in the conviction that only the totalizing experience of Art can make us understand the profound Beauty of Nature, through the distortion of reality on which the artist intervenes, sharing with the viewer what is out of the ordinary.
