Francesco Pacelli (Perugia, 1988; lives and works in Milan) graduated in Design at Politecnico University. He worked as assistant for Roberto Cuoghi and was part of the artistic direction of the project space Dimora Artica in Milan. His research is an attempt to connect different worlds and references inspired by science, spirituality, the relationship between nature and artifice, cosmic stories, often merging into fantastic and alternative situations compared to the reality of everyday life, in a sort of constant search for escapism.
