Raisuli Oimar Tancredi Valvo
Raisuli Oimar Tancredi Valvo was born in Rome in 1980 from parents both architects and professors. From an early age he shows a strong propensity for literary, pictorial and music disciplines. Till 1993 he lives in Italy and immediately excels in school studies, undertaking the study of Latin and ancient Greek at the classical high school. In 1994 he lives for a short period in Central Africa where he is a guest in the residence of the Italian Embassy in Conakry (Guinea), also visiting Sierra Leone. He is particularly struck by this experience for the extreme poverty of the local population, for the shortage of means of subsistence, for the health risk and for the general political instability of the country which sees it subject to numerous civil unrest due to clashes between the government and gangs of anti-government guerillas. Shortly after his return to Italy the Embassy itself will in fact be permanently closed due to the excessive security risk and re-inaugurated only in 2018. In 1998 he completes his classical studies first in the ranking in his high school and with the highest marks and honors. In the same year he will be awarded for this result with a plaque conferred by the then President of the Italian Republic Carlo Azeglio Ciampi and by the then mayor of the capital Francesco Rutelli. In 1999 he is admitted first in the ranking to the most important Conservatory of Music in Rome: the National Academy of Music of Santa Cecilia, where he studies experimental musical composition and composes musical works performed orchestrally. In the same year he starts his university studies. This date, however, marks the beginning of a rather troubled period. In fact, despite the admission to the Faculty of Literature first, then to that of Law and, subsequently, to that of Political Sciences and passing with full marks all the exams taken, he decides not to complete the university courses, disappointed by the academic context and by teaching methodologies and opposing a clear refusal to learning disciplines through third-party logics and methodologies that he perceives incompatible with his modus-pensandi. This period was resolved only in 2007 when he decides to move to Taipei (Taiwan) until 2009. Here he deepens his knowledge of Asian culture and oriental art. In 2010, thanks to his numerous experiences, he was called to work at Monumental Complex of the Vittoriano – Altare della Patria (Altar of the Fatherland) (Rome), the most important monument in Italy, the symbol of national unity as well as institutional seat. Here he works till 2015 on the organization of over thirty-six major exhibitions of art including Vincent van Gogh (October 8, 2010 – February 6, 2011), Salvator Dalí (March 9, 2012 – July 1, 2012), Tamara de Lempicka (March 11, 2011 – July 10, 2011), Renato Guttuso (October 12, 2012 – February 10, 2013) and Piet Mondrian (October 8, 2011 – January 29, 2012). From 2016 onwards he intensifies his pictorial and symphonic production (a production constantly active since 2004) by creating an atelier and a recording studio. In 2018 he publishes the music album Prelude. Parallel to these events he dedicates to the reasoning and development of concepts inherent in quantum physics and new technologies, an attitude that will lead him to reach the gravitational theme. In 2021 he publishes the essay The movement of butterflies, a philosophical text with strongly political implications in which he overturns all the basic concepts of everyday life on a global level and analyzes in detail the theme of contact with more advanced extraterrestrial societies. In the same year he also publishes the art book From Aeshma Daeva to Kathrina – Portrait of an artist in 21 paintings, a critical-stylistic analysis relating to a selection of his pictorial works. These publications are followed in 2022 by the novel Yōko · Floodings of a stormy river. He is currently active in artistic production.
