Notes from the Italian Art Society,
promoting the study of the architecture and visual arts of Italy, from prehistory to the present day.

Italian photographer, painter and designer Luigi Veronesi was born on this day in 1908 in Milan. Initially trained in Italy, Veronesi moved to Paris in the 1930s where he frequently visited the studio of Fernand Léger and other avant-garde artists. He most closely associated with the Abstraction-Création group and also found inspiration in the Bauhaus, particularly the work of László Moholy-Nagy. Veronesi’s abstract works starkly differed from the Fascist art popular in his native Milan. In addition to his own work in painting, printmaking, and photography, Veronesi was a beloved teacher at the Corso Superiore di Industrial Design in Venice, the Accademia di Brera in Milan, and lastly at the Nuova Accademia, also in Milan. He died there at the age of 89 in 1998.
