    A sculptor, jeweller, stage designer and architect, Arnaldo Pomodoro started creating jewelry in the early 1950s working with his brother Gio. Their work was shown in 1956 at the Venice Biennale, and Arnaldo became the first artist to have a solo exhibition at Marlborough Gallery. Arnaldo Pomodoro lives and works in Milan.
