Biography

In 1936 Italian painter Romano Dazzi won a silver medal in the Art Competitions of the Berlin Olympic Games for his Quattro bozzetti per affreschi (Four Sketches for Frescoes). He was the son of the well-known sculptor Arturo Dazzi, and demonstrated an exceptional gift for drawing from earliest childhood. In 1923, Dazzi was sent to Libya by the Italian Government to document military operations and perform colonial subject drawings, where he discovered his passion for the African world, a passion that remained a constant in his artistic production.
