Di Paolo, Paolo

Paolo Di Paolo was born in Larino, Molise, in 1925. In 1939 he moved to Rome where he obtained his secondary school diploma in classical studies and, after the war, enrolled in the faculty of History and philosophy at La Sapienza University. He attended the artistic circles of Rome and decided to develop, through photography, his interest in figurative arts. In 1954 he started to collaborate with the weekly magazine Il Mondo, founded and edited by Mario Pannunzio. Di Paolo would become one of its main collaborators, with the largest number of photographs published (573 images).
