Italo Cammarata was born in Marina di Massa, Italy, in 1947. Today he lives and works in Turin, Italy. Italo began his professional career at some of the best advertising agencies in Turin. Later, after 1980, he moved to the field of design, and he applied the combination of his experience in advertisement and his design skills to industrial projects for companies such as Yamaha, Subaru, Piaggio, JVC, Seiko, Barilla or Porsche.
These activities earned him, in 1984, the prestigious international prize “Compasso d‘Oro” conferred by ADI (Industrial Design Association). Since the beginning of 2005 he has been devoting himself full time to painting, developing an introspective analysis of the common practices of human existence. Italo is exhibiting his artwork on national and international art fairs – e.g. in 2014 at Paratissima, Turin, Italy and Spectrum Miami, Florida, USA, in 2015 at ArtPalmBeach in Palm Beach, USA and ArtExpo New York, USA and in 2016 and 2017 at ARTe Sindelfingen, ART Sylt and Paratissima, Turin, Italy.
