My name is Luca Locatelli and I'm a visual storyteller based in Milan, Italy. My work revolves around the making of the future

My artistic vision is to translate complex scientific solutions for the environment into compelling visuals. Explore the world’s most promising solutions to the climate crisis has been my main focus for more than a decade. My work has been widely distributed on Exhibition, Publications, Educational, digital social networks, among others.

believe that the visual storytelling power can contribute to the debate about our environment and the future

Since 2004 I'm a founding partner of a non-governmental association that contributes to protect 600 thousand hectares of tropical forest in the Amazon forest
