Federico Cozzucoli was born in Messina in 1972. He left Sicily at the age of nineteen and began his theological studies. In 1999 he obtained a degree in Theology from the Pontifical Lateran University of Rome. Later he discovered his vocation as an artist and tried to mediate theology with art. He enrolled at the Pontifical Gregorian University, where he studied the themes of sacred art and graduated as Operator for the Cultural Heritage of the Church. At the same time he attended the Nude School at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and had his first exhibition experiences. The main artistic expression of him is the performance, which combines the experience of the liturgical rite of the Catholic Church with syncretistic elements of pop culture and high culture. For the artist, contemporary Catholicism is characterized by popular devotion and theology that attempts to confront the cultural world. These themes, treated in a not-confessional way, are the subject of his videos, photographs, paintings, digital works and sculptures, but it is necessary to reiterate that the most of the artistic works have born for his performances or have developed as a result of these. Since 2010 he has lived in Sardinia where, in a quiet environment rich in sea and nature, he has the opportunity to meditate and deepen the themes of his work. He is President of the cultural association "Gesto Segno Disegno" founded in 2011.
