Fabio Mauri was born in Rome in 1926. His parents were giants of Italy’s publishing industry. Mauri’s grandfather, Valentino Bompiani, founded one of country’s most prestigious publishing houses, which played a crucial role in the development of twentieth century Italian literature. Raised among writers and painters, Mauri befriended intellectuals in both artistic and cultural circles of Italy’s new avant-garde, among them: the novelist Italo Calvino, philosopher and semiotician Umberto Eco, film director and aficionado Pier Paolo Pasolini (the artist’s close childhood friend), visual artist Jannis Kounellis, art historian Maurizio Calvesi and the writer Edoardo Sanguineti.
