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
His career took many different directions: first a dancer,
then a choreographer and art director.
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.
