The world of Paolo Scoppola is an orography of activities, interests and techniques filtered by the sensibility of an artist devoted to experimentation and in continuous dialogue with his own time. Photography, drawing, music and programming are the ingredients that over the course of a lifetime help define an artistic dimension where the classic dichotomy between analog and digital is dissolved in a superior design that incorporates and exceeds each component.
