The Mauro Staccioli Archive Association announces with pain the death of the artist Mauro Staccioli, which took place in Milan on the night of December 31, 2017 and January 1, 2018. The sculptor born in Volterra in 1937, died in the studio where he worked from the seventies.

Mauro Staccioli was one of the masters of sculpture, known internationally for his "sculture-intervento", works of environmental dimensions that with their essential geometric shapes are placed in deep relationship with the spaces in which they are placed. He was an associate member of the Académie Royale des sciences, des Lettres et des beaux-arts de Belgique and National Academician of the Accademia di San Luca.

The funeral with civil ceremony in public form will be held in Volterra on Wednesday 3 January. The body will be exhibited in the Sala del Maggior Consiglio of the Palazzo dei Priori from 13.30 to 15.00, and then will follow the funeral procession and the last farewell at the Volterra cemetery.
