Giovanni Omiccioli

Giovanni Omiccioli (1901–1975), Roman painter, member of the Roman School.


Omiccioli was born in Rome at Via Flaminia 71, which, at the time was the last building of the city before the countryside.

My painting? It’s as if I have to justify having been born. (Giovanni Omiccioli)

His father was a packer and had a shop in Via Margutta. His customers included the painters Scipione, Mario Mafai, Fortunato Depero, Afro Basaldella, Felice Carena, Armando Spadini, Filippo De Pisis, and Ferruccio Ferrazzi.


Giovanni Omiccioli started to paint, and then, in 1937, he had his first solo show at Galleria Apollo in Rome.
His “Orti” paintings date to the 1940s, portraying the deserted village located under the tuff slopes of Villa Strohl Fern.

These works met with international success. His colors are especially reflective of his style though influenced by those of the Roman School.

One of his works Cristo verde (Green Christ) was donated by the artist to Pope Paul VI and now hangs in the Modern Art wing of the Vatican Museums.

He passed away in Rome in 1975.
