Luciano Sabba's first love for the arts was music. He began taking private lessons as an acoustic-bass player at the age of thirteen. Later, in Rome, he joined several music groups playing a large range of styles from Classic to Jazz and instrumental new sound. Shortly after High school, while being musically active, Luciano Sabba studied Art History at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome.
In the spring of 1973, Luciano Sabba enrolled at the Etienne Decroux Mime School in Paris (Decroux was the teacher of Marcel Marceau). Moving to the U.S. he continued his mime studies with Michael Henry in Martha's Vineyard with the Yard. Sabba has performed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Natural History and in schools and colleges on the East Coast. He became Artist-in-Residence at Artpark, Lewinston, NY. Sabba has often performed at both indoor/outdoor Art Galleries in New York and New England, combining the arts of mime and Sculpture.
Luciano Sabba's debut on Italian television was in G. Pressburger's La Parabola followed by a Gala event in honor of Elizabeth Taylor at Studio 54 in New York, where he choreographed and performed with his partners a Matisse's inspired Tableau Vivent. Sabba was a performing artist at the Festival of Two Worlds in Spoleto, Italy. He turned a crowded medieval square into a photographic stillness with a light touch of his palm, adjusting and repositioning the frozen spectators as sculpture forms moving back from an invisible figure in a tour-de-force of reality imitating illusion.
Later, Luciano Sabba studied Photography / Interior Design at F.I.T in New York. He has since worked as an interior designer & freelance photographer.
