MAURO REGGIANI (Italian / 1897-1980)

The Italian abstract artist Mauro Reggiani was born in Nonantola in 1897. He studied at the art schools of Modena and Florence. By 1928 Reggiani was already attuned to abstraction, and in 1930 on a visit to Paris he met Arp, Kandinsky, Magnelli, and Ernst. So he was well placed in 1934 to collaborate with Bogliardi and Virgilio Ghiringhelli on the first manifesto of Italian abstractionism. Mauro Regginai taught at the Scuola Superiore degli Artefici dell'Accademia di Brera from 1935 to 1946, and was assistant professor of painting at the Accademia di Brera from 1946 to 1955. Air raids on Milan on 13th August 1943 destroyed his studio with 200 works. In the 1950s Mauro Reggiani was aligned with the Movimento Arte Concreta (MAC). He died in Milan in 1980.
