Biography

A painter. In the late 1920s, together with Scipione, Mazzacurati and Antonietta Raphael, who later became his wife, he founded the "School of Via Cavour", as R. Longhi termed it. Its members strove for lyrical, chromatic evocativeness in a world of myth, with fragments of life and history, far removed from twentieth-century monumentality. In the 1930s he painted Roman landscapes, still lifes and portraits. In the post-war period he moved towards abstractionism.
