Italian sculptor Roberto Terracini received an Honorable Mention for his work Targa del CONI at the 1936 Berlin Olympics within the Art Competitions in the category Sculpturing, Reliefs. He studied in Torino, where he later also held a professorship until 1973. At times he worked as an artist in Roma and Venezia. Terraciniâs sculptures were Renaissance-oriented.
During Mussoliniâs Fascist dictatorship Terracini was no longer permitted to work, because he was Jewish. His studio in Torino was nearly completely destroyed by bombing raids and he and his family had to hide from 1943 to the end of World War II.
