Andrea Roggi was born in Castiglion Fiorentino, Tuscany, in 1962. He began to cultivate some of his many interests from his adolescence, including painting and poetry, until he gradually approached sculpture. He deepened his sculptural technique by briefly attending the studio of the artist Enzo Scatragli, also a native son of Castiglion Fiorentino.
The event that marked Andrea Roggi's artistic turning point was his visit to the Santa Maria Novella Cathedral in Florence, where he was literally enchanted by the strong plastic effect of the La Trinità (Trinity) fresco by the Renaissance painter and his fellow countryman Masaccio.
In 1991 he founded the artistic workshop "La Scultura di Andrea Roggi", where he creates his own works and, with the help of his assistants, is able to create sculptures rich in detail and large in size. Bronze is in fact his material, with the rite of lost wax casting he is able to masterfully transform clay models into true masterpieces. In 2017, fascinated by the impressive quarries surrounding the town of Pietrasanta, the artist began to devote himself to creating works of art in marble.
At the end of the 1990s, he became the promoter of the Art for Young movement, the aim of which is to awaken in young people a passion for art in all its forms. The artistic movement then led to the creation of the Parco della Creatività (Creativity Park) project, where it reached its maximum expression.
In 2000, Roggi began a fruitful collaboration with the University of Georgia, based in Cortona, and the University of Texas, based in Castiglion Fiorentino, where he held seminars and courses on various sculptural techniques.
In the early 2000s he was attracted by the intellectual fascination of Pier Francesco Greci (a leading figure in the Tuscan cultural scene) and his theories on the art of Piero della Francesca.
His public works are numerous in Italy - mainly located in Tuscany and Umbria - and abroad.
His works are collected in many countries around the world, and he has participated in national and international exhibitions, including Grand Hall Olympia, London; Ahoy, Rotterdam; Grand Palais, Paris; Forum Grimaldi, Monaco; Oishi Gallery and Fukuoka City Museum in Japan.
