Italian painter and sculptor Ferruccio Ferrazzi was born on 15 March 1891 in Rome. He trained with his father Stanislao (d. 1943) and also studied at the Istituto di Belle Arti in Rome. He also studied French painting, especially the work of Post-Impressionist Paul Cézanne, and found inspiration in traditional figure painting tinged with haunting psychological depth.
