Stefano Benazzo

Stefano Benazzo (born 1949) lives in Umbria, after having left the Italian diplomatic career with the title of Ambassador of Italy. Photographer, sculptor, architectural and naval model maker, he is a photographer of wrecks of ships and boats, stranded on shores all over the world. He has had many personal exhibitions of his work around the world, as well as contributing to many collective exhibitions. He has published numerous books and catalogues and his work has featured on Italian TV (RAI 1). He is the recipient of a number of prizes and titles for his work.

Stefano is currently exhibiting at the Accademia delle Arti del Disegno in Florence where he has 17 of his architectural models on display including one of the Italian Chapel in Orkney, which he was inspired to build after seeing the Aberdeen Italian Circle talk on the subject last year.
