“Manual dexterity is one of our fundamental characteristics. It is nothing other than an extension of the mind…”
Renzo Maggi was born in Seravezza in 1944. He obtained his diploma of Maestro d’Arte in 1961 at the Stagio Stagi Institute of Pietrasanta, and started his apprenticeship under the guide of the sculptor Leonida Parma. After a short period in Milan, he moved to Switzerland where he concentrated mainly on sculpture and painting. During these years, he was also editor of a fortnightly periodical of politics and culture in Italian. In 1992 he returned to Italy.
