Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Edmondo Bacci was born on July 11, 1913, in Venice, Italy.  He studied with Ettore Tiro and Virgilio Guidi at the Accademia di Belle Arti of Venice from 1932 to 1937. His first solo exhibition was held at the Galleria del Cavallino in Venice in 1945. In 1948 he participated in the Venice Biennale for the first of many times. Bacci was included in the first Genoa Biennale in 1951 and in an exhibition of the Movimento Spaziale, the group founded by Lucio Fontana, held in Venice in 1953. He contributed regularly to Spazialismo exhibitions thereafter, among them Espacialismo at the Galeria Bonino in Buenos Aires in 1966.

From the mid-1950s Bacci received support from Peggy Guggenheim.  An important solo exhibition of Bacci work took place at the Galleria del Cavallino in 1955.  His first solo show in the United States occurred at the Seventy-Five Gallery in New York the following year.  Solo exhibitions of his work were held also at the Galleria del Naviglio, Milan, the Galleria d'Arte Selecta, Rome, and the Galleria "La Cittadella in Ascona, Switzerland, all in 1957. That same year he participated in Between Space and Earth at the Marlborough Gallery in London.

Bacci was accorded a separate room at the Venice Biennale of 1958, and he received a Prize of the Municipality of Venice at the Terza biennale dell'incisione italiana contemporanea in Venice in 1959. He was given shows at the Drian Gallery in London in 1961 and at the Frank Perls Gallery in Beverly Hills the following year. In 1961 he also participated in Neue italienische Kunst at Galerie 59 in Aschaffenburg.  He executed lithographs to accompany a poem by Guido Ballo, Il ciè-lo Kàinos, in 1972. Bacci died on October 16, 1978, in Venice.
