Homage to Salvo Monica

This week Sicily lost one of his greatest contemporary artists, Salvo Monica, a gentlemen admired by everyone for the beauty of his work and for the kindness of his heart.

He was born in Ispica in 1917 and studied art in Rome at the Scuola d'Arte della Medaglia and at the Accademia di San Luca. After the war, he returned back to Sicily and devoted his life to teaching at the Art School in Siracusa and in public schools.
