Pizzi Cannella Piero






Piero Pizzi Cannella was born in Rocca di Papa on November 20, 1955
In Rome, about halfway through the seventies, he went regularly to lessons in painting held by Alberto Ziveri at the Rome academy of art, though without completing the course
He also enrolled in the philosophy department of the La Sapienza University
His first solo show was held in 1977 at the La Stanza gallery, a space run by a group of artists including Bruno Ceccobelli, Giuseppe Gallo, Stefano Di Stasio and Pizzi Cannella, and in which he exhibited a conceptually inspired installation in 1978
In March 1980 he participated in his first group show in the La Tartaruga gallery, a show that represented his only attempt at Citazionismo anacronista, a movement that quoted knowingly from the art of the past
After retiring from the art scene for some four years, in 1984, together with Ceccobelli and Tirelli, he moved into a studio in the abandoned Cerere pasta factory in Via degli Ausoni, Rome, a place where Dessì, Gallo, and Nunzio already worked, all exponents of what was to become known as the New Roman School
