  • About the Artist
Nicola Zamboni was born in Bologna on May 10, 1943. Once he completed his studies and the military service, he enrolled at the Academy of fines arts of Bologna, but feeling dissatisfied with the context and the relationships with teachers, he dropped out it at the third year. In 1968 he went to England to meet Henry Moore who housed him in for about a month. In 1975 he started teaching as assistant of the sculpture Quinto Ghermandi at the Academy in Bologna. From 1997 to 2004 he was chair of sculpture at the Academy of fine arts of Brera in Milan, where he met Sara Bolzani. The sculptor portrays the human figure with realistic forms, with a careful search of the detail and life-size, in large choral works that require the use of various modeling techniques. His sculptures are made of different materials including ceramic, concrete, stone, wood, copper. Zamboni signed the big monument placed in Marzabotto, in front the town hall, as well as many sculptures-monuments commemorating the massacre of Bologna located in various Italian cities. His public artworks are located across Italy and especially in the Emilia-Romagna region. Drawings, sketches and sculptures enrich private collections in Italy, Spain, Vietnam, Germany, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Equatorial Guinea, Cuba, Mexico, Moscow, Crete, Australia, Sweden, France e Libya.
