The Claudio Capotondi’s artworks originate from ancient times, or maybe future times, they are able to represent a life spent drawing, designing, melting and, more importantly, sculpting the matter, without the fear of having to face one of the greatest challenges for a sculptor: the one of monumentality.
Born in the old Etruscan city of Tarquinia in Italy in 1937, Claudio Capotondi has lived and worked in Rome and New York. He now resides in the city of Pietrasanta, near the marble quarries of Carrara, where he creates and personally carves his sculptures. To this date, he has produced nineteen public artworks through Italy, United States, Japan, Lybia, and he has held personal exhibitions in Rome, Florence, Turin, Carrara, Bari, New York, Paris, Finland, as well as group exhibitions around the world. In the year 2000 he received the coveted Michelangelo Award from the city of Carrara. His sculptures can be found in several public and private collections.
