- About the artist
Adami is a Italian sculptor. He received a classical art education which began at the Leonardo Institute in his home town. Subsequently he studied at the Scuola d’Arte in Cascina and at the Academy of Art in Florence. Early in his career he won several art awards. In 1959 he decided to complete his studies in Paris. His work is based on classical Italian tradition but also is inspired by his journeys to Africa; his forms evoke an association with African art. Although in the early seventies Adami created abstract works with surrealistic influences, his oeuvre is in fact figurative. Adami exhibits his sculptures in museums and galleries in various countries and are to be found in important international art collections.
