“I’ve been working for the past 15 years in the field of art, mass communication and visual journalism. I love telling stories and I use any possible form of expression to do it.”
Vitale began his career in art working with visionary projects such as 80/81 and Hell.com that have played a relevant role in global exhibits of media and art. The works discussed, presented and exposed important and controversial issues through installations in several festivals, fairs and museums around the world including MOMA in San Francisco, CITIA Annecy, Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York City, ARCO Madrid, ZKM Karlsruhe, ARTISSIMA Torino, FIB Benicassim, and La Villette Numerique in Paris. These exhibits were featured and reviewed by many international news groups such as CNN, BBC, El Mundo, El Pais, Liberation, Le Monde, Repubblica and Encyclopedia Britannica.
The process of creating exhibits gradually led Vitale to the world of mass communication, creating campaigns as creative director for many brands and advertising agencies including FIAT, the Olympic Games, Ogilvy, RAI, and Grazia Neri.
In 2009 Vitale published his first book, “Diari di un Aristopunk”, a fictional work.
Vitale’s documentary style work, Cocaland, a multimedia project regarding narcotraffic in Bolivia, has been selected amongst the 5 projects of the year at the MIPDoc, and Cannes film festivals in 2009. Now Cocaland is a video-concert with live music, live video and text written for Vitale by a former cocaine producer.
In 2012, Vitale produced a massive scale installation of 50 meters of video wall at the Atlanta Airport’s new terminal.
For several years, Vitale worked as a freelance photojournalist for various magazines.
In 2010, Vitale began working on “The Raw Horse”, a large scale fine art photography project photographing horses in Argentina.
