Alfredo Troise was born July 25, 1976 in Naples and has always lived in Arzano in the northern outskirts of Naples.
At the age of six years he shows the first symptoms of a neurological disorder that will mark his entire life, placing him in a big hardship relational: the Tourette syndrome.
Not well known, the syndrome of Gilles de la Tourette takes the name of a French neurologist who described it for the first time in 1885 and, although it does not identify a specific disease or a specific neurological weak point, presents a behavior pattern characterized by several recurring events: involuntary movements of the body and / or face; vocal or verbal tics which may vary from the repetition of a word or the impulse to say embarrassing words or expressions (coprolalia and copro praxis). The Touretticì subjects are creative people and convey, often, their “emotional tension” in sport or art. In fact, the syndrome appears to affect a propensity to investigative activities and rhytm, not surprisingly, Mozart, one of the most famous artists in history, was suffering from this disorder.
The various manifestations of the syndrome, however, interfere with adequate social growth and are accompanied by numerous frustrations. They are these hardships that Alfredo Troise aims to tell in ‘”Anema dò Priatorio”:
a pictorial journey that reveals the story of a man like many others, a martyr of discrimination in a blind and deaf society in front to the unknown. Victim of denial and ignorance, Alfredo Troise today finds the courage to show themselves to the world through his works, exposing that ones that best represent him and finding a common thread between his suffering and the Neapolitan tradition of the cult of the souls in purgatory that seek in God a support to address their pain.
His paintings are the story of obsessive looks, glances denied, disdainful glances that always torment him, forcing into a form of atonement in the Earth, almost as it were, in turn, a Soul in Purgatory.
