Tarcisio Damizia was born in 1934 in Serrone and has been for years the manager of the post office there. He has always cultivated a passion for painting and his writing began with plays ‘Enzymes’ and ‘Ballad of Quirici and Juliet’. The public has learned to appreciate him with the book ‘Blood Turnip’, a collection of short stories.

His passion for painting is also catalysed by the desire to portray his country, through his slant and views, with a personal and recognizable style. It is clear and bright from which emerges a hint of well-hidden melancholy.

In 1972 he received the Prize of Culture of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, for his unpublished comedy, and in 1993 the Prize “Rocca D’Oro” for professionalism.
