GIANDOMENICO DE MARCHIS

GIANDOMENICO DE MARCHIS
(Villadeati 1893-Brasil 1967)

Athletes
1930s
Bronze and travertine, 17.7 x 6.3 inch

The bronze, belonging to the 1930s, was meant to be a sport trophy and it represents three athletes. The figures used to hold up a crystal pyramid with written DVX (Dux, the latin word for Duce), as we can deduce by the comparison with an exemplar preserved in the headquarter of the most ancient Gym Society of Italy, based in Turin.

It’s signed on the bronze base G. DE MARCHIS, while on the pedestal there is written “Il Direttorio del PNF” (The Political Directory of the National Fascist Party).

Giandomenico De Marchis was an italian artist very active during the Fascism Dictatorship. He also worked in the sculpting decoration of the Foro Italico, formerly Foro Mussolini, a sports complex in Rome built between 1928 and 1932.
