In the 1940s Arturo Martini declared that sculpture was dead. Romano Vio proved him wrong and his copious works, in museums, private collections, public spaces, are living proof that sculpture is alive and worthy of respect and wonder.

Art lovers and art critics are invited to contribute to consolidating Romano Vio’s rightful place in the history of Italian XX century sculture.

Numerous works in the family’s possession, not on view to the public, are awaiting a final resting place in a museum. Hopefully Venice will finally want to recognize her famous son and the City Council will grant permission for the museum dreamt of by the family.
