Cecco Bonanotte’s History: No.2

Being appointed a professor at the prestigious Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma in his 24, he began to win a lot of important competitions.

In 1971, when he was 28, a gallery in Rome made his first one-man show.
On this occasion, he was assigned the commission to execute two works for the St. John Apostle and Evangelist Church in Mililani Town (Hawaii). And Kimihiro Fujii from Osaka Formes Gallery in Japan, who later founded HIRO GALLERY, was fascinated by his works and purchased them. Kimihiro Fujii at that time was only 31 years old. After that, HIRO GALLERY became his main private gallery.
