Born in Piedmont, Italy in 1953, due to an interest in yoga Giorgio Dallorto became drawn to Tibetan Buddhism and Himalayan culture in general. This brought him to meet his future and main teacher, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, in the summer of 1978. Over the last twenty years he has dedicated himself in a free and independent way to an in-depth study of Tibetan history and culture and in particular the arts.
He has studied Tibetan language under the direction of Prof. Fabian Sanders giving particular attention to the different styles of Tibetan calligraphy, as well as following many courses of Tibetan calligraphy, both Uchen and Umed, led by the well-known artist and calligrapher Tashi Mannox.
Giorgio has also collaborated with Migmar Tsering, the Tibetan artist based at Merigar West, in the realization of the Mandalas inside the cinerary at the Gar, situated in Tuscany, Italy. In recent years he has completely dedicated himself to artistic works reflecting both our Western artistic heritage and at the same time the traditional art of Tibet.
