Biography

A painter and sculptor. After graduating in Medicine, he began painting under Casorati. He made friends with Gualino and Gobetti and worked on "Rivoluzione Liberale" and became one of the founders of Giustizia e Libertà. During his stays in Paris he took from post-Impressionist and Fauvist painting, as well as Modigliani. Between 1929 and 1932 he exhibited with the Sei Pittori di Torino, and then with Menzio and Paulucci alone. In 1935-36 he was sentenced to internal exile in Lucania, where he wrote "Christ Stopped at Eboli". After the war he worked increasingly intensely as a writer, journalist and painter.
