Arnaldo Pomodoro (1926- ) studied surveying and building construction in Remini after World War II. Later he studied set design and worked as a goldsmith with his brother Gio, who is now a prominent painter. Arnaldo's career as a sculptor began in the mid-1950s, and since then, his work has been permanently installed in many places in the United States, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Pepsico Sculpture Garden in Purchase, New York, and the Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. Locally, he had a retrospective at the Fischer Gallery at U.S.C. in 1985.
