Francesco Camillo Giorgino, aka Millo, was born in Mesagne in the province of Brindisi in 1979.
After graduating he moved to Pescara where he graduated with full merits at the Faculty of Architecture. As an always passionate and tireless artist, after his studies he carried out a personal aesthetic research in the field of painting, focusing on the relationship between space and the individual, moving from the micro to the macro scale.
In the last decade Millo has focused on the production of large-scale mural works, which have lead him to paint all over the world. His mural production boasts over 120 works scattered across all continents, in addition his paintings have been exhibited in London, Chicago, Rio De Janeiro, Paris, Los Angeles, Miami, Rome and Milan.
Furthermore, his works are part of two permanent collections: Urban Nation Museum for urban contemporary art in Berlin and the Straat Museum for graffiti and street art in Amsterdam.
Millo1s design takes its cue from the former Odeon Cinema, a few steps from the City Centre's Park. The cinema was designed and built between 1948 and 1952 by the architect Virgilio Marchi, a leading exponent of the second futurism.
It was the largest cinema in Livorno, particularly appreciated for its excellent acoustics and the refinement of it's soundscape.
Currently closed (since 2008) tand recently converted into mostly a parking lot, the murales brings back to the memory an important building, which remains in the heart and memory of the people of Livorno to date.
