Vittore Bocchetta, born in Sardinia in 1918, is an Italian sculptor, painter, and academic. Bocchetta was a member of the anti-fascist Italian resistance movement during World War II, who survived the German Nazi death camps. Upon returning to Italy, he decided to move to Argentina and Venezuela (1949–1958) and Chicago (1958–1986), before returning to Verona in 1989, where he lives now. His Chicago years have been some of the best in his life.
