Rosario lives in Acireale (Sicily-Italy), a small town between the sea and the slopes of volcano Etna.He gives thanks to his loved and hated volcano for a precious a millenial gift: the Lava Stone, one of the most ancient and noble materials from the Earth, the stone which became art, ornamental objects, sculptures, interior decorations, solutions for architecture…and its originality, expressiveness, versatility, resistance allow to recognize it as a unique product all over the world. He gives thanks as well, to the blue sea, shining sun, coloured land of his own Sicily, which all around him managed to transform into art. That same art he is breathing everyday and he attempt to embed in his art works thus to feel with someone the same breath.
