Born in Milan in 1968, Paolo Ventura lives between Milan and Anghiari, in the province of Arezzo. After several years of fashion photography, he moved to New York where he lived for ten years and began his work as an artist, then returned to Italy, where he lived between Tuscany and Milan and where he continues to create his stories and his sets. Paolo Ventura has exhibited in museums and private galleries around the world, including the 54th Venice Biennale. Among the main exhibitions, in 2015 he exhibited in Minneapolis the cycle La città infinita at the Westein gallery and the anthological Un mondo infinito!, at the Valkhof Museum in Holland.

In 2016 he was invited, with a personal exhibition, to the International Festival of European Photography in Reggio Emilia and his works from the Cotroneo Collection were exhibited in Reims during the Festival of Photography and in Valledolid. Also in 2016 he created the sets for the Teatro Regio in Turin, for the opera Pagliacci by Leoncavallo, directed by Gabriele Lavia, who inaugurated the 2017 season.

CAMERA-Italian Centre for the Turin Photo-aphony exhibited at the same time the preparatory works of the Pagliacci project. In 2018 Ventura exhibited the retrospective Racconti immaginari, with about 100 works including photographs, sets and some objects chosen by the artist at the ARMANI / SILOS in Milan, and the personal Racconti di Guerra al MAG, Museo del Garda.
