Daniele Alfani was born in Loreto (An) and moved to Arezzo in early childhood, the city where he still lives and works. He has always been passionately devoted to pictorial art, experimenting its various techniques.
Between 1979 and 1980, he studied a course in Graphic Arts organized by the Province of Arezzo, which for the most part took place in the gallery-study of Roberto Remi, where he learned the techniques of etching and other methods of printmaking. Between 1981 and 1989 he participated in various group exhibitions. At the same time he wove an intense activity of mail art (postal art) with artists all over the world, of which he organized two exhibits in Arezzo. These works attracted the attention of the Video Music channel in the early nineties.
In 2002 he was selected among the thirty finalists of the National Prize "Art Mondadori." In the same period he became a member of the Cenacolo degli Artisti Aretini.
In 2011 and 2012 he had two solo exhibitions of painting and sculpture at the Villicana D’Annibale Galleria d’Arte in Arezzo with works realized with recycled material. In April, 2012, he participated in the group exhibition
"> cm2 900: 40 Artisti Contemporanei in Sansepolcro," at the Alessandrini Foundation. His art was displayed with that of masters including Schifano, Gentilini and Montuschi.
He curated and participated in two special group exhibitions, one in 2014 by the title of “for the LOVE of ... photography, painting & sculpture - Two group exhibitions in honor of Algred Stieglitz” and another in 2015 by the title of “750 years between Hell e Paradise passing through Purgatory - Two group exhibitions of painting and sculpture in honor of Dante Alighieri” at Via Cavour 85 in Arezzo.
The works of Alfani are present in private collections in Italy and Europe.
