Guido Venturini
Life started on 24th October in Alfonsine (Ravenna). Scorpio. I immediately dedicated myself to playing games, then soccer, skiing, basically anything rather than learning. At the age of seven, I forged my mother's signature on a note returned to my teacher. From then on it was a downward slope. Then followed an early sexual awareness. My first love was with a Belgian dancer, at, I believe, the age of eleven. She was the first of many summer loves from the Marina Romeo campsite, where we used to get drunk on wine at 150 Lire for one liter while listening to Woodstock and Easy Rider. Before I even knew the meaning of the word love, 20 years of my life passed by. At the age of 13, I traveled to Amsterdam and Copenhagen. My father often had to accompany me and my sister to Rolling Stones concerts, whome I preferred to the Beatles. It is hard being a father. I began playing the guitar in a rock group. We performed our own material and we used background scenery projected onto a screen. Nuclear disaster and peace songs. I then played disco music and jazz. I was fan of Orietta Berti, Marcella Bella and Nini Rosso. I didn't have very high demands. During my school time at the "Liceo Scientifico", I spent much time on the flipper machines, being a regular guest in the bars and I had a girl-friend at the Art School. Fortunately Ravenna is near to the sea. My political engagement was incredible. As I wasn't allowed to attend the conservatory, so I chose architecture in Florence. Within a short time I discovered the existence of "Radical Architecture". From now on my CV is more precise and boring. For the rest, my work and object speak for themselves, just like journalists do. I still listen to a lot of music, but I don't buy design magazines. I have enough freedom and work together with soft-hearted people. I am in love with the most beautiful woman in the world.
