Arnoldo Pomodoro was born in Morciano di Romagna, throughout childhood and education he lived at Pesaro. His artistic work begins in '53 with a reference to Klee, then recognized by critics. He later moved to Milan.

His works of the fifties are reliefs that fascinate poets Leonardo Sinisgalli and Alfonso Gatto. It emerges in these works a singular "writing" (or network of signs or patterns), unprecedented in sculpture, which is now on interpreted variously by the major critics, first Marco Valsecchi, Guido Ballo and Giulio Carlo Argan. It is passed to the "full relief" in the early sixties and then to the large size. He celebrated awards: San Paolo in '63, in Venice in '64, one of the six international awards at the Carnegie Intitute in '67, the Henry Moore Grand Prize in Japan in 1981.

His works are in large squares (the Royal in Copenhagen, the Piazza Meda net downtown Milan), in the largest public collection in the parks (that of Pepsi Cola), in the most famous private collections. He taught in the art departments of the prestigious American universities: Stanford University, University of California at Berkeley, Mills College, Oakland. He later lived in Milan next to the "dock" at Porta Ticinese, in a large house which is nestled in the historic district, and is moving fast for the many interests abroad.
