I was born in Portogruaro, Venice. I am a painter and I create portraits. I always went for some amusement through painting. Still I uphold my flayr for portraits, for I enjoy so much creating and looking at them, then. I love to mix things…Sacred and profane for example. It is quite normal for me to put purely erotic situations together with examples of devotional observance, like praying figures, misycs or martyrs.
I always enjoyed exploring the potential of mind and body, with a special interest in the “at the most” situations: figures able to shock while saving their power of seduction, in a kind of mix which makes you share, even at home, the performance of deep-rooted taboos.
I owe a lot to my school education, especially to my High school of Arts and, then, to the Fine Arts Academy in Venice. Saturno is my Christian name. In the ancient septenarius, i. e. the set of the visible planets including the sun, Saturn’s symbol is depicted by the cross of the elements dominating a moon crescent. In my works I almost always put his monogram aside the signature.
