Always intrigued by the shapes of faces, Francesco develops a natural propensity to recognize human faces in living and non-living forms in childhood, starting to draw caricatures of well-known characters. Francesco studied management and graduated twice, obtained a doctorate, and began his career as a university professor. The practice of art remains dormant to leave room to his academic career, when, in 2017, he accidentally rediscovers his inclination, with a drawing on a travel notebook sketched during a work trip from France to Italy. That sketch is so intriguing that he shows it with curiosity to his family and close acquaintances, unveiling that he has started to develop a visual expression method that creates his style. His working career in England, North America and in particular in France, further enriches his method that he likes to refer to as of pareidolic art.
