Flavio Favelli was born in Florence in 1967 and currently lives in Bologna. He uses appropriated materials as metaphors of the past in order to lead the viewer to an understanding of the present and towards a creative way of imagining the future. As the artist states, "I have always focused my work on pre-existing materials and objects that I reconstruct and redefine with new forms, such as Murano glass, cast iron railings, marble floors, and furniture found in used markets."
