(Tunis, 1885 – Viareggio, 1968), painter and printmaker, moved to Italy at a very young age, first to Florence, then to Lucca where he met Lorenzo Viani, and then again to Florence where he enrolled in the Academy of Fine Arts. In 1907 he participated in the 7th Venice Biennale with a tempera and received his first award. He thus began to participate in numerous exhibitions and shows in Italy and Tunis, with whom he always remained in contact and where, starting in the 1930s, he was recognized as a “master” of the artists of the young generation. In 1935 he participated in the Venice Biennale and the 2nd Quadrennial in Rome, and the 1940s and 1950s saw him featured in numerous exhibitions not only in Italy and Tunis but also in France, Denmark and Sweden. In the 1960s he fixed his residence permanently in Viareggio, which awarded him a gold medal, and in 1967 he exhibited 16 paintings at the historical exhibition at Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, “Art in Italy 1915-1935.”
