Loreto Verrocchia

Born in 1957 - Italy

BIOGRAPHY

Loreto Verrocchia was born in Pescina (province of Aquila in the Abruzzes region of Italy) in 1957. He lives and works in France, where he first arrived at the age of 6. He studied visual arts in Paris and then turned to painting at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Montparnasse. In 1985, he left Paris for Provence and started his never-ending experimentation with materials and volumes.

In 1993, Loreto Verrocchia created his first monumental metal sculpture for the Féria de Béziers: a unicorn. He intended it to be a “tribute to women, beauty and purity”, a constantly recurring theme in his work. In 1996, he sculpted a Pegasus and three unicorns for private collections in France.

More than twenty years of pictorial research and work with metals have made Loreto Verrocchia a real jeweler of sculpture, known in equestrian circles for the refinement and beauty of his work. His horses seem to be alive and ready to jump. His style gives grace and lightness to the animal, and his colors exude poetry and softness.
