Andrea Aversa was born in Milan in 1979. Aged eleven, he moved to Rome
with his family.
After completing the classical lyceum, he enrolled at the
Faculty of Economics 'Federico Caffe'' at the University of Roma Tre,
where he graduated in Business and Economics Administration in 2003.
In 2006, he obtained a Master in Fine Arts at the New School in New York.
In 2011, he had his first solo exhibition A True Story at the Espace
Labo in Geneva, a body of work that precedes Progetto UV, a research
project focusing on immigration by sea interweaving real events and places
with elements of science fiction, super-architecture and the Cold War.
The project was first presented in Milan at the Museo del '900 in 2013,
on the occasion of the exhibition Arimortis, curated by artist Roberto
Cuoghi and ViaFarini curator Milovan Farronato, was then shown in Paris
in 2015 at the exhibition venue Sometime Studio.
Since 2013, Aversa practice has been focusing on the Fascist architecture in
Rome, its social and cultural heritage for the city of Rome and for
Italy more in general. The series of works deriving from this research
combines autobiographical and collective memory and is titled Un Ete' Italien.
In 2017, the project is published in collaboration with DATA - Sharing
Archives for the second issue of Archium.
Since 2009, Andrea Aversa has been living and working in Paris.
