Roberto Mannino is a widely exhibited sculptor whose large-scale works and installations are in handcast paper and mixed media. Among his prominent works is a permanent installation created for the Instituto Nazionale della Grafica in Rome. Entitled "STREAMS," the exhibit's sculptures respond to the water of the adjacent Trevi Fountain (see video below). A dual citizen of Italy and the U.S., he earned his BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and his Sculpture Diploma from the Rome Academy of Fine Arts. He has taught drawing, sculpture, figure modeling, and printmaking studio at the Rome campuses of Temple, Cornell and Loyola since 1993. His research focuses on contemporary papermaking, sculpture and book arts, and he recently introduced a papermaking course at Temple Rome, which has quickly taken off as a favorite class.
