One of the most important tuscan scultors of the 20th century.

Teacher of sculpture at the Accademy of Fine Arts in Carrara for twenty eight years.

During his life he showed his works in personal exibitions in many Italian towns and he took part at invitation at important national and international exibitions.

In 1966 the flood destroys all his works in his atelier in Florence. In 1969 he carries out the monumental sculpture "The goalkeeper" for the stadium of Forte dei Marmi and in 1974 for the Italian Football Association of Coverciano in Florence the monumental work "The footballers".

His works are in private and pubblic collections as Uffizi in Florence, Palazzo Pitti in Florence, Gallery of Modern Art in Rome, Sportmuseum in Barcelona (Spain), Accademy of Fine Arts in Carrara, Museo dei Bozzetti in Pietrasanta, Consejo Superior de Deportes in Madrid (Spain), Palazzo degli Studi in Sarzana, Contemporary Art Museum in Santiago (Chile), Modern Gallery in New York -N.Y.(Usa).

Anthological posthumous exibitions were prepared in Forte dei Marmi, Colle Val D'Elsa, Pontremoli, Florence and many other towns.

The Secondary School in Forte dei Marmi is named after him. Bronze sculptures by Ugo Guidi are awarded every year as International Prize of Political Satire in Forte dei Marmi since 1993.

Every exibition had posters and monografic books. Two round tables were held on the artist and his work.

The life of Ugo Guidi crosses the century and his making follows the classic school, based on the sculptural tradition. With the artistical growth his artigianal ability melts with a sensible and poetic work of the surfaces.

In the 50s his classical vision turns into a romantic vision with harmonic and semplified forms according to the romanesque-tuscan sculptoral tradition and with religious views, with remembers of the etruscan-rinaissance portrait art.

In the 60s the figuration becomes more free and the surfaces have a strong space research.

In the 70S the abstraction is stronger and he reaches absolute essentialities.(See photos on the italian text).

Ugo Guidi made sculptures from stone, wood, and above all clay.
