Ivano was born in Italy and emigrated to Canada with his parents at the age of six. From an early age he was passionate about art and science. Although sciences dominated his formal education, his passion for art was never satisfied. The Renaissance Masters drew his attention and he studied their works and methods which resulted in his pursuit of figurative sculpture as he approached middle age.

Ivano is retired from his dental practice in Whitecourt where he practiced for 35 years and is currently an Assistant Clinical Professor at the school of dentistry where he teaches and conducts dental research. In his spare time he enjoys exploring the various media from which objects of art can be made: stone, bronze, clay and metal
