elevated YAF15 It is with profound sadness the family announces the unexpected passing of Gianluca Primucci on Saturday, June 5, 2021. He will be missed by all, especially his parents, Dominic and Anna (nee Iannacci), his brothers Joseph (Nicole De Gasperis), Daniel (Renee Vallescuro), his grandparents and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, niece and friends.
elevated YAF15 Gianluca was a graduate of Mississauga Private School, continued his studies in Fine Arts at York University, the Toronto School of Art and completed his degree in graphic design at Humber College. As Gianluca developed his art and design skills, he volunteered at the Mood Disorders Association of Ontario. At the MDAO, he taught art history and visual arts to adults with mood disorders and grew the program from implementation to several classes plus workshops all planned and taught by Gianluca. He furthered his volunteerism at the Royal Ontario Museum as a tour leader sharing his curiosity and knowledge with others.
elevated YAF15 Gianluca achieved great success overcoming many challenges and touching many lives in his short life. His artistic talent was known to everyone but his special gift was his kind and gentle soul which enabled him to relate to others and make them feel special.
elevated YAF15 In Gianluca’s words: “My art work has always been and will always be a tool for self-expression and release. In my opinion, art must always be for art’s sake, but more importantly for the artist’s sake.” His family is grateful to all those who inspired his curiosity and imagination and above all, to those who supported him on his journey.
elevated YAF15 In memory of Gianluca, pay it forward and do something kind for someone that will make a difference in their lives … just as he would. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Mood Disorders Association of Ontario would be greatly appreciated.
