Giovanni Carosi embarked on a 7-year journey exploring the world on a boat and returned to Tuscany, where sculpture became a calling for him in 1986. He went to Paris to study under Japanese masters. For him, "a sculpture is not a decorative object; it occupies its space and comes to life." Currently, he has his own workshop in Dordogne, France. He received the City of Morges Prize at the International Sculpture Symposium in 2019.
