Oriano Favaretto was born on April 25, 1956, in Treviso, Italy, a place located in the venetian countryside, which through its natural and human presences marked his first interior and artistic building.
He graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice with the Master Emilio Vedova, a prestigious maestro of the language of gestures and signs.
