    Born in Modena in 1866, Ernesto Gazzeri later moved to Rome where inspired by his classical surroundings he became a marble sculptor of repute. Known for sculptural portraits and funerary monuments, in particular his late masterpiece, a monument to Tommaso Campanella modeled in 1923 in Stilo, Italy, he also executed genre works and mythological subjects such as the present bust.
