Filippo Luini took his degree in Theories of Communication from Milan University, after which he attended the MFA in Imaging Arts-Photography at Fondazione Fotografia Modena.

The installation Itaca (2014) is a tale told in images split into three parts: Pensatore, Al planetario and Isola. The photographs and the video  tell the symbolic story of a man on a quest to discover himself.

The subject depicted in Pensatore is an individual confined to his own mind. His hand is stuck to his face with a piece of parcel tape. The taping blocks him in a pose of meditation, also reminescent of a lament.

The photograph of the stars was taken at the planetarium. The inner structure of dome shows the surface onto which the stars are projected. The aim is to make the illusion of infinity visible, sealed off within an empty architectural space, and thus metaphorically representing the limits of knowledge.

The third part of the story is a video created by following a piece of tangerine peel abandoned on a tram. This negligible element, illuminated by the city lights, evokes the image of an island and thus suggests a possible destination for the jouney.
