Je suis allé trouver une amie d’origine italienne au centre de la France pour rendre visite ensemble à un de ses amis lui aussi d’origine italienne. La cuisine été spacieuse et nous étions là tous tranquillement; on causer et l’argument été l’immigration passée quand, à un certain moment, cette tranquillité fut interrompue par l’irruption de la femme de Beppe qui criait : « Beppe tu dois tuer ce coq là ! Il me laisse pas rentrer dans le poulailler. Regard ce qu’il m’a fait… » et elle nous montrait ses jambes bien rayées. Beppe se leva menaçant pour sortir, et moi avec lui car j’étais très curieux de voir le fléau imminent. J’avoue mon étonnement en voyant la fierté avec laquelle ce coq allait et venait majestueux et inconscient du sort que bientôt il lui aurait touché. Ce fut alors que je décida …d’en faire une sculpture.

Roberto Tagliazucchi, sculptor, was born in Carrara. In 1980 he moved to Paris where he began his artistic career, taking part in important exhibitions such as the “Salone d’Automne” and “Réalités Nouvelles”. In 1986 he won the contract to decorate the new church of Cergy-St-Christophe and then in 1988 he was in charge of the decoration of the church Villeneuve-Le-Roi. His sculpture, Christ d’Aleray, was selected by the Archbishop of Paris,Cardinal J.M. Lustiger’s commission of religious art to be installed in the first church built in Paris for a century, Notre Dame de L’Arche de l’Alliance.
In 1989 he was commissioned by the French Ministry for Culture to produce “Prometheus”, a marble bas-relief (7 x 3 metres) for the artistic high school, Le Parc, in St-Maur-Des-Fosses. Another of his monumental sculptures stands in the town hall of Evry (1991). In 2002, Tagliazucchi received a special mention for his work “Non Uccidere”, inspired by the events of 11 September, at the international competition “Il nuovo linguaggio delle trasparenze” in Brescia, Italy. In 2003, he won the contest for a sculpture at the hospital Santa Chiara in Trento with his work, “Maternità”. In 2004 the council of Pordenone bought his model, “Arciere”, for the decoration of its new headquarters and then in 2006 he carried out a fresco “les acrobats du cirque du soleil” (6 x 3 metres) for the suburb of Saint-Mandé (Paris).
He has collaborated with the architect Stanislas FISZER as well as with the Roma studio of architecture and Constantin architects in Paris.
His works have been acquired by the St Maur Museum in Paris and he also has sculptures on display at the Bibliothèque National de Paris as well as in numerous other important private collections both in Europe and the United States.
