Sandro was born in Venice, Italy in 1937 and began painting at the age of thirteen. At age fifteen he had his first one-man show and turned professional the same year. Sandro has had twenty six one-man shows in the major capitals of Europe as well as New York and Canada and has participated in numerous international group shows. From 1960 to 2006 Sandro lived and worked primarily in New York City and now resides in Suffolk County, Long Island where he maintains an active studio.

In 1953 at the age of sixteen, he was awarded First Prize for painting at the prestigious Premio Bevilacqua la Masa, where two years later he was awarded First Prize again, and this time for Drawing, which had never happened before in the 100 plus years of that institution. Sandro has won several national awards in Italy including the very prestigious “Best Italian Painter” under age thirty-five in 1955, when he was just eighteen years old. That competition, “Incontri della Gioventu”, was sponsored by the Italian Government. While still living in Venice, Sandro had his first New York City one-man show in 1959 and was then invited in 1960 by the gallery owner to come to New York. He has since established a good following of collectors while in America. Sandro’s first retrospective was held at the Italian Cultural Institute of New York in October 2005. He also has had one-man shows in New York and Montreal in 2007. Sandro achieved international notoriety with his social realist paintings of the 60’s and 70’s. More recently, his Venetian Memories and his Landscape collections have been well received by critics, collectors and the general public alike. Since moving to the Island, for him an inexhaustible source of inspiration, Sandro has been working almost exclusively on his Long Island Impressions Series.

The following partial select list of his collectors includes:
Peggy Guggenheim, Venice, Italy.
