Alberto Sughi was born in Cesena, Italy, in 1928, but has been living in Rome for some time. Considered to be one of the major Italian artists of the generation that appeared at the beginning of the Fifties, Sughi was the leading exponent of this figurative pictorial era in which "Existential Realism" was spoken about. His work quickly attracted the attention of art critics, causing a significant convergence of eminent scholars and essayists, even though of diverse orientations, and was presented in the most important collections of Contemporary Art, from the Rome Quadriennale to the Venice Biennale, as well as in many other exhibitions, showing to other countries abroad what was happening in Italian Art from the Sixties until now.
