Carlo Pizzi

Carlo Pizzi (1842-1909) was an Italian landscape painter.

Of modest family, he began to study alone with the help of the landscape architect V. Bianchi and Giovanni Bertarelli from Lecco.

After entering Brera he had G. Fasanotti as his teacher and later L. Riccardi and R. Casnedi. Active as a landscape architect, he was influenced by artists such as E. Gignous, his fellow student, and especially by the S. Poma from Como. With a preference for the views of the surroundings of Lecco, uncontaminated nature is the protagonist in its wild and luxuriant appearance, of which he painted several times the mountains and the lake, Mount Medale, the old customs at the port of Lecco and the landscape with waterfall.
