BiographyEdit

Vincenzo Milazzo started painting using this technique since mid '70s Naïve participating in a long series of solo and group exhibitions, often bringing first prizes and special mentions.

He began exhibiting in Taranto and in the neighboring cities, participating in exhibitions at the ExpoArte of Bari and in private galleries in Martina Franca, the city in which he currently lives. Over the years he has collaborated on numerous initiatives for the rediscovery and cultural valorization of his land's traditions, which also are the main subject of his artistic representations.

In Italy he has exhibited his works at the literary center of Lazio and in several places in Emilia, the land of the Italian naïve art, where he exhibited his artworks in the Antoniano of Bologna, at the Santissima Annunziata, Parma, the Italian exhibition of naive painters of Carpi and the National Museum of Naïve Art 'Cesare Zavattini' in Luzzara.

The new millennium has seen the presence of his works abroad first in the United States, in a solo exhibition at the Algonquin Club of Boston, inaugurated by the Italian Nobel laureate Franco Modigliani, and then in Japan, in Tokyo and Kurashiki, with the foundation Italia in Giappone.
