Davide Ricchetti was born on 15/12/1979 in Modena. Since he was a child he has shown a natural propensity for drawing; every surface, be it a sheet of paper or a wall in the house, are the basis for releasing a strong inner need to express himself and communicate with signs, figures and colours.

In 1997 he won his first important prize, the "Reale Creativo" competition, an artistic event that attracted thousands of citizens. From 2000 to 2004 he studied set design at the Academy of Fine Arts. In 2004, Ricchetti was invited to exhibit in the United Arab Emirates and at the prestigious Sale del Bramante in Rome. During this period, he also designed and created theatre sets collaborating with important Italian directors.  In parallel with his work as an artist, Davide Ricchetti is also a secondary school art teacher. In the course of his career he has created important works for authoritative private collections in Italy and abroad, set designs, murals and commissions for public institutions and cinema; he has participated in numerous collective and personal exhibitions, receiving important artistic awards. Some of his works have been published in books, Italian and foreign magazines and especially in the latest edition (2021) of the Mondadori's prestigious Catalogue of Modern and Contemporary Art (CAM), which includes the most important Italian artists of the 20th century.
