Giorgio Morandi, born in 1890 into a middle class family in Bologna, in 1907 enrolled at the academy of fine art of this town, from which he graduated in 1913. After the death of his father, which took place in 1909, his family moved permanently to via Fondazza no. 36 and Morandi became the head of the family, assuming all the responsibilities. His friends during these years were his fellow students Mario Tozzi, Osvaldo Licini, Giacomo Vespignani, and Mario Bacchelli (whose brother Riccardo wrote the first critical essay about the artist in 1918, in which he hailed the Morandi “revelation”).
