Giacomo Benevelli (1925-2011)

Giacomo Benevelli was an Italian and French sculptor, born in 1925 in Reggio Emilia. Studying between France, Italy and Germany, he lived and worked in Milan for most of his life. Since 1957 he’s been exhibiting in Italy across the globe, and has been appointed Head of Sculpture at the Accademia di Brera in Milan.

His works are now sparse in private and public collections in Italy and worldwide, like at the Antwerp Royal Museum of Fine Arts and at the British Museum in London, as well as in contemporary and historical churches.
