Luca Bucchi was born on 16 June 1966 in Rome. In 1985 he was called up for military service and moved to Pisa, where he trained to become a paratrooper. An eventual accident resulted in the paralysis of his arms and legs which confined him to a wheelchair. From this time on, Luca Bucchi took refuge in a world of longing and of memories, which he continually commits to paper by writing and drawing. These new circumstances made him rediscover his passion for drawing. When a friend of the family and wife of the artist, Guerrino Collina learned about his passion for painting, she encouraged him to submit his works to the Association of Mouth and Foot Painting Artists worldwide. The Association found his works interesting and granted him a scholarship. This gave him an opportunity to improve his painting technique by attending painting courses at an art school in Rome. This is also the school where he earned the diploma for an "art teacher".
