Alessandro Piangiamore is an Italian artist from Rome. He won in 2015 the sixteenth edition of Premio Cairo in Milan, which rewards Italian art.

He shows the different shapes one can get from the same raw material by transforming it.

In 2014, during the FIAC, Alessandro Piangiamore and Gianluca Malgeri exhibited two new projects at Made in Town: La cera di Roma (wax) and Primavera Piangiamore (glass), transformation of the materials by the hot melting.
