    Playing with curves, angles, roughness and softness, Livio produced work that was strong, subtle and poetic. Over the course of his career, the author of the "Dame de Tignes" received numerous awards. In 1988, he was awarded third prize in the French Grand Prix des Arts Plastiques. In 2007, he won the Pierre Dumas prize.
