Was born in Bern, Switzerland in 1990.

He graduated with honors in Sculpture from the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera in Milano in 2015 with a thesis titled “The transformations of the trip, from the grand tour to contemporary travel“. Giancotti creates very unique iron sculptures, he is a pioneer in this field and one of the few young Italian sculptors who explores all the possibilities of using iron to project a perspective for three-dimentional sculptures. He works with architects in Italy on construction projects and his works are collected by private collectors both in Italy and Hong Kong.

At present he lives and works in Milano.
