Laccio is an innovative, unconventional talent in dance and more. W magazine, one of the most important magazines of the New York press, calls him a “youthquake”, and Vogue says that he’s a talent “with the face of a Botticelli angel and the spirit of Johnny Rotten”. Young, eclectic, versatile, Emanuele Cristofoli, known as Laccio, was born on the 25th of June, 1981 in Agro Pontino, Italy.
His artistic life began through urban dance meets where his potential was immediately recognized.
He has diverse interests starting with his specialization in interior design at the Istituto Europeo di Design and going on to his commitment to fashion: he designed a successful collection received from Villanova in Kuwait to New York’s Bloomingdale, and then on the pages of Vogue in the UK and the international W magazine.
His career took many different directions: first a dancer, then a choreographer and art director.
Laccio can coordinate, organize and direct an event for TV, music or theatre in every detail grounding in originality and quality. Taking care of genre, goals, target audience, he can also work with suggestions from the client.
Laccio’s art direction has an innovative and iridescent mark which is clealy seen in the Modulo Project, the most dynamic and original company in Italy, and at the Modulo Factory, the first training academy devoted to urban dancers.
His career took many different directions: first a dancer, then a choreographer and an art director.
Now he is working as a choreographer at “The Voice of Italy”.
He will give form to the voices, working with singers and creating dances with his own company: Modulo Project. During the show he will cooperate with coaches J-Ax, Piero Pelù, Facchinetti’s and Noemi to bring out the singers character and uniqueness. He will bring freshness to the show that Rai 2 director, Angelo Teodoli, called “the platform to rebuild Rai2”.
