(Siena, 1970) he attended the Art Institute “Duccio di Buoninsegna” in Siena where he graduated in 1989 earning the title of Master of Arts.
Then he started traveling a lot between Siena and India , where he sculpted works for an Ashram in Maharashtra. Spirituality and art merged into the marble of the East. With the sculptor Armando Basile, in Florence, Filippo Galgani learned to know the bronze, with which he modelled and blended fragments of bodies. The research for a classical age long gone lead him to compare himself with differents materials: the fire, the wood, with lost-wax casting. Decisive was the encounter with his old friend and sculptor Piergiorgio Balocchi which definitively opened the doors to marble sculpture.
Filippo attended and graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Carrara in 2003 and he started exhibiting in Pietrasanta and Florence at the Tornabuoi Gallery. He has participated in several symposia, including Peschici, Montepulciano, Chianciano and Carrara. In 2006 he was invited to exhibit in Switzerland at the Triennal of Sculpture of Bad Ragaz.
He collaborates with the artist Kurt L. Metzler. He has opened his own studio in Quercegrossa, in the heart of the Chianti region for ten years.
