Born in Turin, Italy, in 1976, Pietro Reviglio has exhibited in the United States, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom. Focusing on darkness both as a physical entity and a state of mind, his research intertwines painting, photography, narrative and moving image.

Exhibitions include those at CAMeC Museum (Italy), Castel dell'Ovo (Naples), Palazzo Ducale (Genoa), Museo Laboratorio d'Arte Contemporanea (Rome), Palazzo Farnese (French Embassy, Rome), the 54th Venice Biennial, The Italian Academy (Columbia University, New York), the Museum of Oriental Art (Turin) and the Ishida Taisheisha Hall (Kyoto).
His work is present in public and private collections in the US and Europe, including the collections of the Brooklyn Museum (New York), the Albright-Knox Museum (NY State), the Sidney Mishkin Gallery (City University of New York), the Italian Academy (Columbia University), and the Museo d'Arte Contemporanea (Castle of Rivara, Italy).
