Biography :
Giulio Tadolini (1849–1918) was an Academic-trained Italian sculptor, who was born and died in Rome, where he passed his career in the family atelier, which he inherited from his father Scipione Tadolini (1822-92), who in turn was the son of Adamo Tadolini, Antonio Canova’s favourite apprentice.

Aside from his numerous portrait busts and memorial sculpture for private persons, Giulio Tadolini executed sculpture for three famous public monuments, the monument to Victor Emmanuel II in Perugia (1890) and for the funeral monuments of Umberto I of Italy (1900, Pantheon), and of Pope Leo XIII (1907, St John Lateran, illustration).
