Roberto Fontirossi was born in Lucca on January 26, 1940.
In his art studies he soon discovered his inclination to painting, to which, after a short period of teaching at the Liceo Artistico in his city, he has been continuously dedicated since 1960. The meeting in 1959 with the lawyer Ilo Giacomo Nunes, Superintendent and Inspector of the Cultural Monuments of the Lazio Region, was crucial. He brought him to Rome and, together with Indro Montanelli, Virgilio Guzzi, Renato Guttuso and Antonio Donghi, in 1961 the artist set up his first solo exhibition at the S. Salvatore in Lauro Gallery. In 1964, invited by Fortunato Bellonzi, he took part in the ninth Quadriennale of Rome, winning the prize for 'Bianco e Nero' on that occasion. There are numerous prizes and awards obtained: Visioni di Viareggio award, Primavera Tosca Sacenti prize in Florence and Rome, Suzzara award, Diomira prize in Milan, etc. For a short period, stimulated by his friend Mino Maccari, he collaborates, together with Tono Zancanaro, in the production of satirical and grotesque drawings of clear social commitment on the pages of newspapers and magazines such as Il Giornale, Corriere della Sera, La Nazione, Il Mondo, etc. His works are found in important public and private collections and his participation in national and international exhibitions are more and more frequent and qualified. People who wrote about him: Fortunato Bellonzi, Dino Carlesi, Enzo Carli, Giuliano Carli, Antonio Donghi, Lella Durando, Giovanni Faccenda, Virgilio Guzzi, Salvatore Italia, Mino Maccari, Vincenzo Marotta, Silvia Martinotti, Mario Marzocchi, Nicola Micieli, Indro Montanelli, Gigi Montini, Tiberio Prete, Massimiliano Simoni, Giovanni Testori.
