A painter, a graphic artist, and a beatboxer
Before covering the Peter’s painting side, a little soundtrack by himself
Pietro Crivelli graduated at the Fine Arts Academy of Florence in 1974. In 1977 he had his first international exhibitions, in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and in New York City.
In 1977 he left Italy for Asia and India for four years, relocated to Sicily in 1981-1982. Between 1982 and 1995 he was in the USA (California, Colorado, and Seattle, Washington), where he was active both as a painter and a decorator.
He then moved to Bali, where he continued his activity as an artist, painting also in India and Indonesia.
In 2010 he relocated back to Italy, moving in an area not far from Florence, his home town, but completely new for him: the Farma Valley, in the hills and off the beaten track, about 40 km South of Siena.
Here he continues is activities, combining his experiences, extremely varied and from different continents with the interaction with a local environment which maintains a very strong legacy with nature and with the history of Tuscany.
Being a fully-fledged artist, Pietro also has a consolidated track record as a musician and an entertainer: in 1971 he was one of the founding members of Whisky Trail, the first band in Italy to propose Irish folk music. He then left the group when he started his international travels, but was always active as a guitarist and bass player, with strong ties to folk, country music, blues and Afro-American spirituals.

Since 2010 I collaborate with Luciano Massetti, Senior Researcher at the Biometeorology Institute of the Italian National Research Council (Florence facility).
A contractor for maintenance works of different kind, and with a great experience with wines (running a wine bar in Tuscany for more than ten years).
He was also the first citizen registered as a participant in our Night Sky Quality Participatory Monitoring project, in 2008 (cfr. TG2 Costume e Societa del 30-3-2010)
Manager of Casa Bazar (now partly Euronics Point) in Torniella, and dance instructor. Supporting various projects.
Torniella, Piloni and Scalvaia are three hamlets populating the scarcely populated Farma Valley, half way between Siena and Grosseto, in Southern Tuscany.
Torniella (with the presence of folks also from Piloni and Scalvaia) was the starting point on January 4, 2007 of the Palla a 21 in Chicago project. This subsequently triggered many of the stories you find on this site.
A summary of the case is presented from different angles in two articles (Il Tirreno, 2016, and Langscape Magazine 2018).
