Vittorio Caradossi

Vittorio Caradossi ( Florence, 1861 - Florence, 1918 ) was an Italian sculptor. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, where he was a student of Augusto Rivalta, one of the most important names in Italian academic sculpture in the second half of the 19th century. Working almost exclusively with marble, he executed several public monuments, most notably his renowned statue of the Florentine sculptor of the Renaissance Desiderio da Settignano, whose model was exhibited at the 1900 Universal Exhibition, in addition to the memorial to Giuseppe Dolfi, hero of the Risorgimento Tuscany, located in Borgo San Lorenzo. He also exhibited in the 1909 edition of the Paris Salon.
