AKELO - Sculptor, designer and goldsmith
Andrea Cagnetti
Andrea Cagnetti, known by his artistic name Akelo, is an Italian sculptor, designer, and goldsmith. He is regarded as one of the foremost authorities in the world of ancient jewelry.

Akelo has been the subject of numerous publications, reviews, and television appearances, all of which highlight not only the artist's talent and stylistic originality but also the value of his research. His work is a topic of study in many art institutions.

Born in 1967 in Corchiano, a town built upon the ancient ruins of the Etruscan city of Fescennia, Akelo grew up in an environment where the culture of the Etruscan people still thrived. From a young age, he was immersed in art and beauty. During his youth, he embarked on a spiritual and exploratory path with the aim of delving into the depths of ancient thought. This involved studying alchemical and esoteric texts and engaging in intricate metallurgical experiments.
The artist, Akelo, fondly describes himself as an ancient soul, a Renaissance man navigating the complexities of the 21st century. He follows a rhythmic set of existential principles, guided by the mantra "Pray, read, read, reread, work and then you will find," which he derives from the volume Mutus Liber.

Akelo firmly believes that true elevation and attaining levels of excellence are only possible through profound passion, unwavering discipline, and genuine motivation. His artworks are a testament to this philosophy, each one uniquely crafted, invaluable, and technically unmatched. They emerge at specific junctures in history, seemingly participating in the ongoing evolution of civilization. These creations can be likened to precious mosaic pieces, where the past, present, and future flow gracefully in a seamless continuum.

While rooted in values and knowledge from antiquity, Akelo's works also embody a contemporary identity. They serve as a manifestation of the artist's visionary nature, balancing the fine line between drawing inspiration from the past and channeling it to create the present. This process becomes a constant projection towards the absolute, showcasing the artist's profound ability to synthesize the timeless with the modern.
Andrea Cagnetti's works have been showcased in numerous national and international exhibitions, gaining recognition and acclaim from art enthusiasts around the world. In recent years, his artistic creations have caught the attention of prestigious museums and private collectors, resulting in several acquisitions.
