Born in 1983, Alessandro Calizza graduated at DAMS but later on decided to change direction and dedicate himself full time to painting and carving. Since 2003, he is one of the Energia volunteers and he has collaborated during the years in different projects, organising travels in Senegal and Gambia, where he mainly took care of the Sostieni a distanza un bambino ed il suo villaggio project. This project also kept him busy in Italy for many years, where he also managed the volunteer training and the organisation of the association events and initiatives to sensitise the primary and secondary school students of Rome.
