Rotelli Euro was born in Tuscany in 1955, although his family moved to Friuli when he was still a child. He always feels a strong inner desire to communicate his feelings, and after first experimenting with painting, he later discovers photography. This sees the birth and development of a passion which brings him to the point of not only making photography his daily work, but also of expressing himself artistically through this medium. He begins to dedicate himself to research into new techniques and approaches. He is enthralled by both landscapes and the people he portrays in black and white, while carrying out his own personal experiments in the darkroom. His discovery of Polaroid enables him to achieve the means to fully express his way of 'feeling' and 'interpreting' reality as he sees it. This procedure, in fact, allows him to intervene and work upon the picture’s surface manually, with results that are always different and original. His research brings him to use different films and materials, to experiment with techniques such as Transfer, Emulsion Lift, Manipulations, Painting and Collage, and inventing and perfecting personal proceedings that enable him to transform the objective reality into an intimate personal language. He delves into and immortalises cities and the countryside, both for private commissions and for personal experimentation. Sensitive to human form and its expression, he portrays personalities and artists. For commissioned work he creates art catalogues, calendars and publishing.
