Aldo Mondino

Aldo Mondino was born in Turin in 1938, where he died in 2005.
In 1959 he moved to Paris, where he trained at William Heyter’s atelier, the Ecole du Louvre, and attended the mosaic course at the Academy of Fine Arts with Severini and Licata.
In 1960, he returned to Italy and began exhibiting at Galleria L’Immagine in Turin (1961) and at the Galleria Alfa in Venice (1962). This was followed by the decisive meeting with Gian Enzo Sperone, director of the Galleria Il Punto. He also had major solo exhibitions at the Galleria Stein in Turin, Studio Marconi in Milan, Galleria La Salita in Rome, and Galleria Paludetto in Turin.
His main exhibitions include his two participations in the Venice Biennale, in 1976 and 1993, his solo exhibitions at the Museum fur Moderne Kunst – Palais Lichtenstein in Vienna (1991), the Suthanamet Topkapi Museum in Istanbul (1992, 1996), the Museo Ebraico in Bologna (1995), and the Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna in Trento (2000).
His works are included in the permanent collections of the most important national and international museums and in numerous private collections.
