Pinuccio Sciola, the internationally renowned Italian sculptor, was born in San Sperate near Cagliari. He studied art in Cagliari, Florence and at the International Academy of Salzburg; he also attended Moncloa University in Spain. He knows Kokoschka, Minguzzi, Vedova, Manzù, Fritz Wotruba and Henry Moore. He is present with his works at the Quadrennial in Rome, Barcelona, Paris and Vienna. Near Stuttgart, in the historical centre of Kirchheim Unter Teck, one of his sculptures was laid as a foundation stone of the European Parliament. His works are part of public and private collections around the world, and are present in the public gardens of Arnhem in the Netherlands; in the Hooidonk Castle Park in Belgium, in the Trianon Palace of Versailles and in the Park Centre Kunst Project Bärndorf Bei Baden near Vienna. Since 1996, his personal research on stone, its intrinsic nature and experimental incision techniques lead him to the musicality of stone. The "sound stones" sculptures by Pinuccio Scioli are exhibited all over the world and concerts are organized in which these become real musical instruments; they are a source of inspiration for artists, musicians and composers. Pinuccio Sciola left this world on 13 May 2016, but his works continue to vibrate with renewed energy.
