Stefano Losi: was born in 1969 in Lake Como, near Milan, where he was classically educated in literature and fine arts. After his graduate degree at the Luigi Bocconi University of Milan in 1993, he covered senior management roles in different international institutions, and he is currently senior official of the United Nations in New York, where he is also President of the UNSRC Literary Cultural Circle.

It combines sculptures in bronze, steel, cast glass and LED lights, contemporary music and spoken word, and linen studies of the human figure in oils and oxidized metal minerals, with an epigrammatic Latin poetry. After a long series of events organized since the early 1990s in Europe, including shows and poetry readings in formal and alternative spaces, ranging from galleries, to workers unions and social centers, his art has been honored with several solo exhibitions at the United Nations and in established galleries in New York. Antonio Maria Costa, Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations, wrote: “This is a splendid union. In the words of these poems I find the same hope I cherish when I observe the world.” Five books collecting his art and epigrams, providing an overview of the author’s work in the respective creative periods, were published in 1996, 2001, 2010, 2013 and 2017.
