About
Alessandro Rosato is an Italian author and artist.
Lucifross was his first artistic alias.

Work experience  
He prefers not to be defined by labels.
He chooses the word “author” because he believes that it does not only mean being a published writer but also being the creator of something. For him, everything always starts with a concept, and it does not matter whether the outcome remains in words or turns into a visual, audio, or a mix of it all.

Alessandro is passionate about observing and reflecting on the different meanings that can be given to life.
Before primarily exploring the arts and writing, he had an international advertising career.

He worked on several projects as a brand strategist and researcher for agencies including, but not limited to, DDB Barcelona, Global Digital Mojo, Onroad, and with brands such as Berlucchi Franciacorta, Nike, Huawei, and Havana Club. Alessandro also worked as a tutor and teaching assistant at the University of Pavia, as ad interim brand manager for Pernod Ricard, as a freelance copywriter and writer, and as a strategy consultant.

Inspired by the need to give new meaningful and personal purposes to his concepts and observations, he is now further developing himself, as an author and multidisciplinary artist, using his creative skills in different activities.
Self-awareness, belonging, and relationships are common themes that he investigates and researches.

Personal note: If you are interested in commissions regarding my crafts and/or arts or require a strategic and concept-creative consultancy for a project [note that now, I very rarely work on creative consultancies, and only on projects with an ethical/meaningful/artistic purpose], please email me at lucifross@gmail.com. Upon request, I can share my full profile, portfolio, and other materials.
