Francesco Uccheddu (Cagliari, 1956), lived his childhood in Ingurtosu, an isolated mining village between Arbus and Piscinas beach (Sardinia, west-coast). Then he moved to the Dolomites mountains, north Italy, following his father employed in the mining extraction industry. Later he moved to Rome, than to Florence, living by his art.
Even today, Uccheddu works on the road, in his outdoor "laboratory", near the early-christian church of S. Giovanni in Sinis. The Swiss TV - italian department - has dedicated to him an amazing documentary entitled "Vita di Pietra" ("Life of Stone").
