Vinicio Polidori : born in Pistoia same year as me ( so, a young man indeed !) met him first through its drawings explosed by Bar Nazionale in the library room & then met him personally through my friend Alessandra Vannetti who is the owner ‘s bar.
Vinicio ‘s life is made of success & passion : for painting & for travelling.
Left Pistoia at just 17 years old to Britain to study English & work , then left to United States & start travelling as croupier in big cruise boats such as the Pacific Princess , yes exactly that one you saw on TV , the Love Boat ! travelling in the Carribbean & stopped two years in Bahamas.
After 10 years of this life back to Tuscany in Florence to start a new successful carreer in hotellerie , here he got in touch with Pietro Annigoni studio-atelier and Romano Stefanelli – Annigoni’s direct disciple https://it.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pietro_Annigoni from whom Vinicio could learned all the tecniques : from drawing to painting to a frescoes restoration.
His passion for art never left him since nowadays when he did a great portrait of big dimensions to Lionel Richie & Earth Wind &Fire .
He won many awards for his works such as the Premio Leone d’Oro a Venezia in 1966 and many others.
Recently he made a beautiful painting oil on canvas to celebrate Pistoia ‘s 2017 capital of culture & he is actually working on a portrait for a friend of him , an actress – Terry Anderson – who played in “Beautiful “soap opera , so well known in Italy , the role of Christine .
Do you want to have your own portrait or a Tuscan landscape in your living room to look at when you miss Italy?
