Deli, in fact a faithful interpreter of modern decadent civilization but also a visionary evoker of ancient culture , a characteristic which is always prominent in the DNA of Italian artist. From this stems the originality of his artistic output, which might appear disconnected in terms of form and theme but is actually always perfectly true to his poetic vision from his alluring female heads, which bring to mind classical nymphs oe ancient shiels decorations, to his ancient idols wrapped in sheets of iron, similar to the blankets used in modern sea rescues. Past and present, together with nature and artifice, exist in the game of simulation adopted by Deli. Alessio Deli knows his craft well and is master of the most varied skills while favoring those that exploit the aesthetic and symbolic values of metal, be it iron, bronze or copper. A manual ability that is not improvised but derives from the long practice of his talent, used to facilitate the output of works that express a free and inventive creativity. Taken from the text by Francesco Negri Arnoldi

His area of research and artistic production, which began in his formative years, has been developed and enriched in the last decade on issues of a figurative nature, both in drawing and sculpture. Deli is known for his sculptures made by assembling and modeling recycled materials; his sculptural style has deep roots in the classical tradition. This relationship between contemporary and classic has been based over the years through the recovery of abandoned and recycled materials, while in this last artistic production, in particular for the realization of the Korai, the sculptor stages a recovery of memory and historical identities linked to the Italian plastic tradition.
