Carlo Lanini.

Carlo Lanini was born on August 20, 1949 in Poppi, a small village in the province of Arezzo.

From an early age he showed a marked predisposition to drawing and painting as he himself narrated "people a few years older than me remember when, at just over four years old, kneeling on the sidewalk of the house or on the landings of the condominium stairs , I drew and colored everything "; then one day, the artist still says, "I had the opportunity to see a box with squares of watercolors; there were over forty colors and it seemed such a wonder that I was enchanted for a good half hour ". Since then he has started painting and has never stopped.

In 1969, at the age of 20, he participated in the Paolo Uccello painting competition in Pratovecchio (Arezzo) and won the first prize. In 1975 he held his first solo exhibition in the imposing structure of the Conti Guidi di Poppi castle.

The important events in his pictorial career, with over fifteen hundred works in oil and as many drawings, take place every ten years.

In 1995 with the first Carlo Dalla Zorza competition at the Ponterosso Gallery in Milan. 1027 artists participate and Carlo Lanini is first selected among the best 50 artists participating in the exhibition and then awarded in the top five with a fourth place.

In 2005 he began an important collaboration with Italarte of Rome, whose owner Pino Purificato is the son of the well-known painter Domenico Purificato.

In 2015 he started working with Orler Gallerie di Venezia which selects him in the group of artists of the "Affordable art" program

Between one event and another there were many personal and collective exhibitions that led the artist to present his works in Italy, in Arezzo, Florence, Rome, Milan, Bologna, Parma, Perugia, Borgo S. Lorenzo, Cortona , Sansepolcro and abroad, in Paris and London, in Austria and in the United States.

Since 2003 Lanini has opened his painting school in Poppi where he teaches those like him who are art lovers and eager to paint.
