His father was a sculptor in marble. On his mother's side of the family are many ancestors who were painters and sculptors. Notable among them was Angelo Pizzi, a particular favorite with Napoleon who, after conquering Venice in 1797, nominated him to the post of Director of Accademia di Belle Arti (Fine Art Academy) and contracted him to create the Napoleonic Aisle in Piazza San Marco (St. Marks square), in front of San Marco Cathedral in Venice.

The FEMALE FIGURE is fundamental to his work, which is grounded in the grand classical tradition of superb draughtsmanship. At the same time, his sense of composition, design, delicacy and keen sensitivity are uniquely his own. The particularity of his models is very important to him and fundamental to his creative process, the model being, in a sense, the co-author of the art.
