Turin, 1883 – 1958
Son of a carpenter from the Valsesia, he studied at the Accademia Albertina, winning many accolades. In 1905-07 he spent time in Paris, but his works linked to the animal kingdom are above all the result of a personal interpretation of mittel-European trends and 'Jugendstil'. Considered on a par with the likes of Rembrandt Bugatti, Sirio Tofanari and Renato Brozzi. He worked on many Lenci creations.
