Pio Fedi Italian, 1816-1892


One of the finest carvers of nineteenth century Florence, Pio Fedi, came to flourish under the instruction of Romanticist Lorenzo Bartolini and Neo-Classicist Pietro Tenerani.  Pio Fedi's works do not command with overpowering force, but rather unfold with a naturalness of form. Fedi went on to create a statue of Andrea Cesalpino for the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, a bronze monument of General Manfrede Fanti in the plaza of Santa Croce and executed the grand allegorical Statue of Liberty which was a tribute to the poet Giovanni Battista Nicolini.  Fedi died in Florence in 1892, leaving a great body of his work as public treasures.
