CARLO ZINELLI (1916-1974) | He was born near Verona, Italy. At the age of 31, he was admitted to the San Giacomo hospital in Verona. Ten years later he started to scratch graffiti on the walls of the establishment. Faced with a need for self-expression on Carlo’s part, the hospital board permitted him to attend the painting and sculpture workshop created in 1957. Carlo went on to produce almost 3,000 works.
