When he was very young he moved to Follonica and attended the artistic secondary school in Grosseto and then on to the Accademia delle Belle Arti in Florence. His painting is defined as “decoded”, and therefore it is a language with which Linardi wants to represent the contemporary with avant-garde techniques. He is a polyvalent artist who in addition to the decoded paintings, creates installations and sculptures with the intention in the future of also dealing with video because, in his opinion, each idea has its own means.
