Federico Cozzucoli born in Messina in 1972. He left Sicily at nineteen to begin theologic studies, which concludes in 1999, earning a bachelor's degree in theology at the Pontificial Lateran University in Rome. Subsequently, discovered his vocation as an artist, tries to mediate theology with the art and enrolled at the Pontificial Gregorian University, where he studied the themes of sacred art and graduated Operator for Cultural Heritage of the Church. At the same time he attended the School of Nude at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and he had his first exhibition experiences. His main artistic expression is the performance, which combines the experience of liturgical ritual of the Catholic Church – which is no longer actively and constantly practiced as a time – with syncretistic elements of the pop culture and high culture, reflecting the elements that characterize contemporary Catholicism: the popular devotion and the high theology that confronts the world of great philosophical culture. These issues, treated in a non-confessional way, are the subject of his videos, photographs, paintings and digital rework, sculptures, but is necessary to reaffirm that the majority of works come to the performance or develop as a result of these. For same years new he spent his winters in Calasetta where, in a quiet environment full of sea and nature, he have occasion to meditate and deepen the themes of his work.
