In 1957 and 1958 Ripasarti lived in Rome mixing with the many artists which gravitated around Via Margutta and Via del Babuino.
Ripasarti then decided to try his luck in Paris where he worked for two years in 1959 and 1960, developing an expressionist style of painting.
There followed a brief period in which his work verged on being abstract, but he was soon persuaded to move back into a figurative style which better suited his vision.
For nearly 30 years Luciano Ripasarti has been developing his very intimate interpretation of nature; Almost exclusively dedicating himself to landscape painting, avoiding, expect in very few instances, any reference to man.
Thus portraying landscape as almost divine state in which man should have no role.
Luciano Ripasarti lives in Parma.
