Born in Livorno, Italy in 1903, Italian painter Alberto Zampieri studied at the Istituto Tecnico and worked in the studio of the Belle Arti run by Gustavo Mors. Like the legendary Caffè Bardi, Belle Arti was a unique place to learn and develop and a popular meeting place for artists throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Zampieri worked diligently and socialized with permanent and visiting artists in both places.
Zampieri was a member of the famous Livorno Group. He exhibited throughout Livorno, Florence, Milan, Rome and Viareggio and participated in the Rome Quadrennial in 1948, 1951-52 and 1955-56. Zampieri received the Michetti and Suzzara awards in 1948 and 1949, respectively.
