Italian scholar Guido Benedetti (Florence, 1979) graduated as a dentist in 2003 and soon he left clinical practice in order to dedicate to humanitarian aid, health cooperation and epidemiology, mainly in sub-Saharan Africa. He worked with international agencies and non-governmental organizations while obtaining a PhD in preventive dentistry (2011) and a Master of Public Health (2017). Currently, his research continues in Europe as field epidemiologist. System for human disease surveillance and social determinants of health are the primary topics of his scientific studies.

Besides investigating on population health, Guido Benedetti carries on a self-taught artistic research on human existence by the means of painting. He elaborates on the current condition of humanity by representing existential metaphors such as abysses and weights, falls and oppression. Recently, he initiated a speculation on the bi-dimensional representation of human body by way of radiography and tomography.

Art is deception. We assert we can see a world.
Really, we are simply listening to a fairy-tale,
dull or charming according to the attitude
of the storyteller (Stefania)

Il faut voir la nature avec les yeux de l’esprit
et non uniquement avec les yeux du corps,
comme un être dépourvu de raison (Fénéon)
