Luciano Ventrone was born in Rome in 1942. In 1983 an article written by Antonello Trombadori on “L’Europeo” induced the art historian Federico Zeri to take an interest in the artist, suggesting that he tackle the theme of still life. It is here that he began his long and still not complete, research on the various aspects of nature, capturing more and more fine details and almost invisible to the "eyes bombarded by millions of images", which are those of men of our time. It is this search for Ventrone that he has raised, over the decades, the attention - as well as that of Federico Zeri - by Sergio Zavoli, Duccio Trombadori, Marco Di Capua, Vittorio Sgarbi, Achille Bonito Oliva, Roberto Tassi, Giorgio Soavi, Edward Lucie-Smith, Beatrice Buscaroli and Eugenia Petrova, to name some.
