Biography

Italian painter Mino Maccari fought in the First World War as an artillery officer, enlisting at the age of 19. On his return to Siena in 1920, he graduated in law and started working at a legal practice in the Colle Val d'Elsa region. It was during these years that he first tried his hand at painting and etching. In 1924 he began working as a graphic designer for the weekly magazine The Wild One, publishing his first graphic caricatures. Maccari then worked for several other magazines as a journalist and author, before and during World War II, with fascist views. Maccari was also a set and costume designer. From 1941-75 he staged nine performances in Roma, Venezio, Firenze, Siena, Milano, and Spoleto.
