Vettore Zanetti Zilla

Biography from Viscontea Casa D'Aste

Vettore Zanetti Zilla completed his technical studies in Venice and in the meantime approached painting by attending the studio of Giacomo Favretto, a family friend.  After a college degree, he decided to learn the rudiments of the art under the guidance of Aegisthus Lancerotto.  After completing military service in Naples and Sicily he returned to Venice for a few years before moving with his family to Abruzzo, where he worked as a teacher.

However, it does not interrupt his artistic research and in 1898 he undertook a journey in several stages across Europe, tightening contacts particularly with the French landscape.  He participated in international exhibitions in the Venice Art since its first edition, in 1895, establishing itself for its lagoon landscapes characterized by a decorative style not devoid of influences from across the Alps.

Experiments with watercolor and gouache painting painted, the latter technique that allows him to obtain bright and pure colors.  Among the international exhibitions include those of Monaco in 1893 and Buenos Aires in 1910.  After the defeat of Kobarid, during the First World War, he took refuge in Milan, organizing two solo exhibitions at the Galleria Pesaro in 1918 and 1920.
