Giuseppe Moretti

A sculptor of public monuments in bronze and marble, Giuseppe Moretti was born in Siena Italy on February 3, 1857. At the age of nine he began training with Tito Sarrocchi who taught him to carve in marble, his favorite medium. Moretti stayed with Sarrocchi until he was fifteen. In 1879 Moretti established a studio in Agram, Croatia but left in 1880 when an earthquake destroyed his studio and temporarily injured him.

Moretti traveled to Vienna, Budapest and Transylvania finally immigrating to the United States in 1888. Moretti, who also enjoyed the business side of art, established the Roman Bronze Works in New York in 1897 with a partner. The business survived but the partnership did not.
