He was born in Turin in August 1966, currently Milan is his adoptive city.
It was when Jacopo was a young man working in his family’s plastics industry that he discovered the versatility of methacrylite, an industrial material normally used to make automobile tail lights. Fascinated by the extraordinary aesthetic and chromatic qualities of this material, which is similar to glass, but considerably lighter, he began to experiment this thermoplastic resin at the beginning of the 1990s. In his atelier, using a machine of his own invention, he produces a filament of methacrylate which he models with his hands to create luminous shapes and monumental works - mazes of threads in an elegant, linear and poetic intertwining of colours.
