Marco Palmieri was born in Naples in 1969. An architect by training, he completed his studies in Dublin. After working in both Paris and Dublin, he returned to Italy and collaborated closely with Ettore Sottsass. Through his work, Palmieri leads an investigation on space in all its facets, interpreted through art, architecture, photography, museum exhibitions and landscape interventions. In 2008 he showed for the first time his watercolour paintings at the Galleria Antonia Jannone in Milan.
