Andrea Cagnetti, también conocido como Akelo (Corchiano, 16 de marzo de 1967 ), es un orfebre , diseñador y escultor italiano. También participa en la investigación de antiguas técnicas de la metalurgia.

Biografía[editar]

Después de obtener el bachillerato científico, se trasladó a Roma , donde, durante algunos años, trabajó como grafista para publicidad , tratando al mismo tiempo el estudio en profundidad de los textos y documentos relacionados con la joyería antigua, la metalurgia y la alquimia.

Combina la actividad teórica de aprendizaje con la experimentación con materiales y técnicas, dedicándose a tiempo completo a la actividad de orfebre y escultor con el nombre artístico de Akelo (de "Aqueloo" , dios griego del agua).

Desde 2010, realiza la obra en bronce titulada HOPE para el Premio Robert Bresson , otorgada cada año durante el Festival Internacional de Cine de Venecia .

Se ha expuesto las obras de Andrea Cagnetti en varias exposiciones a nivel nacional e internacional y han tenido una amplia cobertura mediática en todo el mundo. Son muchas, de hecho, las publicaciones, reseñas y apariciones en televisión dedicadas a él, que subrayan no sólo el talento y el estilo original del artista, sino también el valor de su investigación. En los últimos años, algunas obras han sido adquiridas por importantes museos y colecciones privadas. Cagnetti vive en Corchiano, donde se dedica a la escritura de textos científicos en las técnicas de la joyería antigua.
