About Massimo De Gennaro
Massimo De Gennaro was born in Brindisi, but lives and works in Modena. Since he was a little boy, he began drawing, surrounded by the smell of oil paints in his painter father’s studio.
He enrolled in art school, of course, and later continued his studies in Venice, where he graduated in Architecture.‘Architecture is my wife, and art my lover…’: he thus commented his artistic journey. And, side by side with his work as an architect, he continued to devote himself to painting and photography.
De Gennaro’s passion for art in all its aspects – architecture, sculpture and painting -inspired all his work, and the fact that he ended up working with photography was certainly influenced by this training. He developed his work in manifold directions, deepening his interest in the study of the human figure and of the landscape; he attended several photography courses. He has published several publications in art and photography magazines and two photography books.
