Biography :
Edoardo said Edouard Fortini was an Italian sculptor, originally from Florence, born in 1862. Student at the School of Fine Arts in Florence. Specializing in genre subjects, Fortini also produced portraits of Italian personalities, or funerary monuments in Florence, such as that of Massima Chiti in 1887 or that of Virgilio and Corrado Roini in 1891.

Fortini had his sculpture studio in Florence in the 1890s, via degli Artisti 4. He exhibited in Florence, Milan, Rome, then in Paris, where from 1914 he exhibited his works at the Salon of French artists. In Paris, a bust of the author Carlo Goldoni, made in 1906 and presented in the square Jean XXIII, at the bedside of the Notre-Dame cathedral, is still visible there.

Gugielmo Pugi (1850-1915) was an Italian sculptor. He run a famous sculpture workshop in Florence with the help of his two sons. He worked a lot for export, especially to the United States. His workshop being important, it seemed that he edited other artists such as the sculptor Fortini.
