Italian Farpi Vignoli studied painting, sculpture and architecture in Venturoli. He produced mainly large sculptures and reliefs. After World War II, he first devoted himself to watercolor painting but then went back to sculpture from 1950 onwards. In the 1980s and 1990s Vignoli again created sporting motifs, including bronze statues of tennis player BjÃ¶rn Borg and the motorcyclist Giacomo Agostini. He also created several portraits of American actors.
Vignoli was awarded the gold medal at the 1936 Nazi Olympics in Berlin in the Art Competitions in the category Sculpturing, Statues, for his work Guidatore di Sulky (The Sulky Driver). He was involved in the planning of an architectural complex for the Art Academy of Bologna at the end of the 1950s. Vignoli produced a widespread palette of art activities during his life.
