Italo Botti was born in Greenwich Village, New York in 1923. His artistic career began at age nine, upon winning a competition which led to a scholarship at the Leonardo da Vinci School of Art in Brooklyn. Botti subsequently studied at the Brooklyn Academy of Fine Art, at the Abracheff School of Fine Art and the Art Student’s League of New York. Major influences on his work have been Nicolai Abracheff, Frank Vincent Dumond, Reginald Marsh and Bernard Lamott, all of whom were his instructors.
After the Second World War, Mr. Botti taught at the City College of New York and expanded his repertoire executing murals, mosaics, stained glass and sculpture.
