  Francesco Giuseppe Biafora was born in 1946, in San Giovanni, Fiore (in the province of Cosenza), Italy. He immigrated to Canada, where he still lives today. Biafora is a descendant of a wood working masters' family. Francesco has given life to the woodworking art, passed on from father to son. He brought to Windsor the Octavian style, through the design of the wood doors at St. Angela Merici Church. His work reveals a lecture inspired by the Christian sentiments.

His wife, Anna Iaquinta, uncovers his dream, which is to perpetuate the name of the Octavians in the churches of San Giovanni in Fiore, through the completion of the wood interior, as his previous generations did.
