This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Alberto Mancini (1960-      ) is from the small town of Atina, located in the mountains of southern Italy where his family has lived for 400 years.  His father, a portrait photographer, taught Mancini to draw at a very young age, and encouraged him to experiment with a variety of media.  Mancini had his first art exhibition at the age of 15.  The work displayed was of figures and landscapes in oil.

In 1973, Mancini began his studies in architecture at the University of Architecture in Venice, the most influential in Europe.  While in Venice, he was encouraged in his painting by some of the most important Italian intellectuals and artists.  At this time, he began to develop a particular style and technique that would be recognized as “rigorous, without colorful exaggeration and focused on imagined signs.”

His painting, at this time, was devoted to the exploration of nature and the nature of things.  Mancini also worked in theater design while in Venice.  He exhibited his work in several individual and group show and began earning recognition for his unusual and eloquent style and subject material. In 1986, he earned his degree in architecture, along with many academic awards for his exceptional work.

After graduation, Mancini returned to the mountains of southern Italy to begin a family and to practice architecture.  He also continued to paint and to accrue critical attention and prestigious awards including the “Leon d’Oro Assessorato alla Cultura.”  In 1997, his work was exhibited in what was called “the most important exhibition ever organized in the Lazio region [near Rome].” 

Mancini has been described as both poet and painter.  The Italian poet and essayist Alfonso Cardamone said “Mancini masters his technique…he is modern because he meticulously deconstructs images…he goes beyond every post-modernism and is never influenced by banality and self-complacent insignificance.”

Biography from Imperial Fine Art:
Alberto Mancini, a 50 year - old Italian painter from the mountain village of Atina, has been exhibiting throughout Europe, the Middle East, and the United States since 1975.  His command of color and composition earned him early acclaim from critics and audiences as well as awards including the prestigious Italian Golden Lion Award.  Mancini’s eloquent, abstract paintings are inspired by what he describes as “nature, and the nature of things.”  He says, “In my paintings, I try to activate the need for stillness, through a  slow discovery of the layers, of colors, lights and forms; a slow acquisition of the equilibrium. Through this mode of perceiving, my hope is to raise the attitude of listening to the world around us.” His unusual approach to creating depth on the canvas, allows the viewer to enter the painting on their own, deeply personal terms.  As one collector said, “When I saw the painting for the first time, I felt that someone had painted the story of my life.”  His paintings are also evocative of the mysterious world of spirit.  

Mancini, who earned his doctorate in architecture with highest honors from the University of Venice, expresses the profound influence of the natural world through thematic explorations that result in discrete series of paintings.  In 1992, after a two year hiatus from painting while Mancini recovered from a brain hemorrhage that had put him in a coma for two months and left him partially paralyzed for two years, Mancini began painting again.  

His new work, a series of thirty-five abstract paintings inspired by ponds and skies, was filled with layered color and light described by critics as “…a dream’s idea…following hidden, painful, sometimes obsessive pathways.”
