AMBROGIANI Pierre 1907/1985
Pierre Ambrogiani, born January 16, 1907 in Ajaccio, died in Allauch on September 23, 1985, is a painter, engraver and French sculptor. Pierre Ambrogiani was born into a modest family, who came to settle in the old working-class district of Marseille. From the age of thirteen, he was first employed at Marseille-Colbert as a courier of dispatches, then he was a postman from 1928 to 1950 at the Post Office in Marseille.
In 1936, helped by André Malraux and Louis Aragon, he participated in the creation of the first Provincial House of Culture with his friends the Marseille painters, Antoine Serra, Louis Toncini, François Diana. A key Marseille personality, Pierre Ambrogiani is also a friend of Marcel Pagnol and Jean Giono. His workshop is located Cours d'Estienne d'Orves, near the Old Port. He travels through the countryside with his car which serves as his workshop, painting on the motif.
He moved into a studio at the Quai Rive Neuve in Marseille in 1943. Renowned for his brightly colored palette, he painted landscapes of the south, still lifes of fish. He also engraves many plates to illustrate works. In 1962, he decorated with frescoes and stained glass the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Marseille. We owe him a postage stamp, Saint-Paul de Vence, in 1961. He is buried in the Saint-Pierre cemetery in Marseille. His body was transferred to the cemetery of Sault, in the Vaucluse.
