Alex Turco

Il Decoratore

I was born in Udine Italy on March 5th 1979. I inherited the passion for the painting and photography from my father. My technique is a mix between beautiful photography and multimedia-graphics coupled with hand-processed materials.

What do you do in your life (work and fun)?

I’m addicted to the water. I spend most of my free time on the beach or at the pool with my wife and friends.

What made you leave Italy and chose Miami?

I’ve always loved the US and I found in Miami the perfect combination between the ideal weather, art and design.

Please share your best memory in the City.

Definitely my first Art Basel. The most important art fair in the world.

What made you choose this specific location and outfit?

Well, I was one of the first artists who really believed in the Design District and look what it is now. I feel very attached to this location. I wear a total look by All Saints, my favorite brand.

Your thought about this project, ITALIANY.US.

I think it’s very interesting. It has a different approach to the media and it can be an amazing support for the Italians in the US.

How would you describe being an ambassador of the Italian style/culture abroad?

It’s an honor doing it with my art.
