Fausto Roma is an internationally acclaimed contemporary artist.

Since 1977 he has been working in the field of art as a painter and sculptor. The constant that has characterized his work since the beginning is the use of the symbol or, if you prefer, the symbolic value assumed by the signs, interpreters of sensory experiences. Starting in the 1990s, taking the totemic form as an archetype, he began to build sculpture-architectures, directing his interest towards raising the idea of ​​the symbol. In 2005, one of his small jewel-sculptures was the celebratory testimonial of the Italian-Russian space mission "Eneide". The jewel was transported by astronaut Roberto Vittori into space aboard the Soyuz TMA-6 spaceship, on the international orbiting station.

He has exhibited his works nationally and internationally in personal and collective exhibitions, including:
