Edo Piantadosi was born in Tarvisio, a small Alpine town at the north-eastern end of the Italian peninsula, on the border with Austria and Slovenia. This multi-ethnic land benefits from a stimulating Mediterranean, Slavic and Saxon cultural cross-contamination that has flavoured his professional and artistic training.
He gained an architectural degree in Venice and, during his studies, attended a photography course taught by Italo Zannier, one of the best-known Italian photographers and photographic historians. This developed Piantadosi’s interest in abstract nature photography.
He continues to nurture his passion for photography while working as an architect. He has managed to combine his two interests by publishing several illustrated books on rural architecture and landscape and contributing to leading specialist magazines.
He exhibits at the Artemisia Gallery in Udine, illustrates books and prepares photographic material for exhibitions and thematic itineraries.
For decades, he has been exploring the aesthetic and artistic component of natural forms and their transformation. This painstaking work has resulted in a series of visionary works of magnetic appeal that Piantadosi only recently decided to exhibit.
In 2017, he held his first solo exhibition at the “La Fortezza” art gallery in Gradisca di Isonzo (Northern Italy).
In 2019, he held another one-man show at the Piccola Fenice exhibition centre in Trieste.
