    Art Brokerage: Giacomo Manzu Italian Artist: b. 1908-1991. He is a sculptor, medalist, graphic artist, and illustrator. He was born in Bergamo on December 22, 1908. His original name was Giacamo Manzoni. He was an important twentieth-century sculptor of religious statuary. In 1934 the artist traveled to Rome to visit St. Peter's. His visual impressions of this visit became the basis of a bronze of a cardinal in 1938. In 1937 his work was shown in the Galleria della Cometa in Rome. He was assigned his own section of the Venice Biennale of the following year. From 1941 to 1954 he taught at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan, where his first retrospective show was mounted in the Palazzo Reale in 1947. From 1954 to 1966 Manzu taught sculpture at the International Summer Academy in Salzburg. He was commissioned to design the main portal of the Salzburg Cathedral in 1955, and Pope John 23rd (1958-1963) asked him to make the "Portal of Death" for St. Peter's cathedral. Manz owed his work at the Kassel "documenta" exhibitions 2 and 6 in 1959 and 1977. The Manzu museum was founded in 1969 in Ardea, near Rome. Giacomo Manz died in Ardea on January 17, 1991.
