Antonio Sciortino

Antonio Sciortino (1879–1947), born in Ħaż-Żebbuġ, Malta, is celebrated as Malta’s foremost sculptor of the twentieth century. Primarily based in Rome from 1900 to 1936, he maintained strong ties with Malta. His notable works, influenced by Realism, Futurism, and Auguste Rodin, include public monuments in Malta and sculptures acquired by the Fine Arts Museum. Sciortino’s unique style garnered international recognition, leading to commissions in Russia, Brazil, and the United States. He served as the director of the British Academy of Arts in Rome (1911–1936) and later as a curator in the Malta Museum of Fine Arts from 1937 until his death.
