Born in Pistoia, in Tuscany, Marino Marini entered the Academy of fine arts of Florence in 1917 to take painting lessons with Galileo Chini and sculpture lessons with Domenico Trentacoste. He is now deceased
He was invited by Arturo Martini in 1929 to teach in Monza (near Milan) at the Villa Reale. He exhibited in Nice with the Novecento group, travelled to Paris and received his first award at the Quadriennale in Rome for his work.
Married in 1938 with Mercedes Pedrazzini, who became a faithful muse, Marino Marini left the Villa Reale in 1940 to become the chair of sculpture at the Brera Academy in Milan, where he remained until 1943 before leaving for Switzerland after the destruction of his studio. He renewed or made the acquaintance of friends such as Fritz Wotruba, Germaine Richier (whose head he sculpted in 1945), Alberto Giacometti, Haller and Otto Bänninger.
A room was dedicated to him at the 24th Venice Biennale in 1948. He then met Henry Moore, who became a loyal friend, and the American merchant Curt Valentin, who organized his exhibition in New York in 1950.
He got the Antonio Feltrinelli Prize in 1952.
More and more sought after in Northern Europe, exhibited in 1973 at the Milan Modern Art Gallery (portraits), and at the Neue Pinakothek in Munich in 1976, in Japan in 1978 (sculptures and prints) at The Gallery 2016 in 1979 in Hauterive (Neuchâtel). He died on 6th August 1980 in Viareggio.
In Florence, the Marino Marini Museum is dedicated to him, and Pistoia has created a documentation centre about his works.
