Artist Cristiano Minetti was born on november 18th 1972 in Crevoladossola, a small town in northern Italy. Since childhood he has been showing interest in drawing and colors. At the age of 21 his job has brought him to Milan, giving him the chance to attend art exhibits of early '800 and '900 painters that sparked his passion on the matter.
In 2010 he decided to move to Pavia province where he held his first exhibit named "an artistic path through painters from Dorno-Pavia, from Biagio Canevari to Marco Lodola". His style is therefore tied to italian '800 and, observing his canvases, it is impossible not to mind-wander back in time to ancient north italian rural life.
