Walter Puppo graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence in 1984 but already in 1983 he had begun exhibiting in Florentine galleries. Amongst which we can particularly call to mind Paolo Marini’s L’Indiano . In 1991 the first Cellule (Cells) were presented by G. Semeraro at L. Pecci Museum in Prato. On this occasion a work of art was selected by A. Barzel and acquired for the Museum’s Permanent Collection. Subsequently, in 1998, the work was published in the catalogue of the Museum Collection edited by B. Corà. Numerous other exhibitions followed in Florence, at both Galleria Immaginaria and at La Corte Gallery.

In 2004 and 2005 Le Cellule (The Cells) were exhibited in two important museums of contemporary art in Sardinia: at Ex-Ma in Cagliari and at Masedu in Sassari, with a project edited by A. Sanna. In 2011, an important work was donated by the artist to the Casa Masaccio art collection in San Giovanni Valdarno.
