Amleto Cataldi is best known for his statue of Louis Podesta in Montevideo, which celebrated the Italian-born food trader. It depicts Flora Cataldo as the model, standing on a base, while dressed with a crown in her hand. The statue is meant to symbolize re-birth after death. Its date is unknown but it is estimated to have been created around 1925.
He was a well-known sculptor whose greatest times were the 1920s and 1930s. He is remembered as a great but forgotten sculptor of these times. As many of the sculptors of his time he was influenced by Auguste Rodin.
