Athos Faccincani is born in Peschiera del Garda on 29th January 1951.
In 1963-64, when Athos was 13, he attended the studio of Maestro Pio Semighini; and then soon after, attended technical schools, where his interest continued to grow. Between 1967 and 1969, he attended the Venetian studios of Novati, Gamba and Seibezzi.In Brescia, in that same period, he met Ottorino Garosio and Angelo Fiessi.
In 1970, after completing his studies, the young Athos, fills with enthusiasm, dedicates himself to horseback riding and painting, with help from his friend Nantas Salvalaggio.
In those years, his power of observation, disenchanted, places him face to face with his first painful impact with social reality and its problems. He learns that life is also made up of alienation, pain, prisons and corruption. He feels a strong urge to personally live up to his civil commitment and becomes a champion for the disabled, the poor and the assisted.
The President of the Republic Sandro Pertini goes to see his personal exhibition. In 1980, after a long journey enriched with artistic and literary events, begins his period of inner regeneration and reconstruction. Within a short time his artistic interest changs from human figure representation to landscapes. His attention is inexorably directed towards nature, something which Faccincani sacredly loves and which became his only model. There is an extreme change of his existential and stylistic attitude moving to a production of evident impressionist source with neat and bright colour aimed at cultural motivations of 2000: the light, the sun and simple report.
