Stefano Alinari was born in Florence in 1961, where he lives and makes his main craft busi- ness activity of goldsmith artist in his lab situa- ted in San Zanobi 24/r street. At the end of study, his culutural training, supported by a incessant curiosity, it’s substantially autodidact.
His interest to make and to make know besi- des need to relates whit world of instruction and take him to be correlator of a lot of uni- versity degree and allow a lot of stages for uni- versity students besides makes cultural events which talks about the reports between arts and philosophical meaning. For him overt professionalism, in the second semester of 2012/ 2013, he has been given a jewel design workshop at degree course Cul- tura e Progettazione della moda of university of Florence. In 2012, with many students and artists, ma- kes a committee called LabArt which establish the discussion of artist and cultural topics. A lot of his works are in public and private col- lections; art critics and cultural operators who belonges at different areas expresses oneself about him works and him poetics. His works are permanently exposes in publics collections at museum of silver and chinaware at Palazzo Pitti in Florence and in private col- lections in Europe, America and Asia.
One of Steano Alinari’s jewels is not necessarily precious since he does not use only objectively “precious” materials, bus also rare ones that normally are not considered preciuous, however significant. In his repertorie you will find beautiful diamonds or simple zircons, in either bronze or noble metals; you can find shards of zirconium oxide rather than fragments of objects of commen use of the most different materials mixed almost in a disorder that, in reality, is the result of a cultural program; apparently transgresive and fruit of the great skill in using tame substances to generate artistic shapes.
With vibrating sections that are safe, the artist puts on paper the detailed design of the structure of the jewel, the forms that will be, of the treatments reserved for each element: the polished metal or perforated, the stones cut or cabochons, the re- flective surfaces or rough and so on, in a meticulous configuration of the result that thus comes at the end not of an occasional path gleaning a chance discovery, but of a trajectory prearranged and tenaciously followed from the first compositional idea of the subject to be made.
