    Mario Madiai


    Born in Siena in 1944 Mario studied at the Art Institute of Lucca. While still young, he moved to the coastal city of Livorno here his talent was recognized by critics, collectors and experts alike. Since the early 1970's, Madiai has enjoyed wide success, and his works have been displayed throughout Europe, Asia, and the Americas. Paintings of Madiai have recently been entered in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art Mario Grimoldi and Museo d'Arte dello Splendore. Madiai is among the most recognized and critically acclaimed names of contemporary Italian art, and is considered the last legitimate heir of the elegant and semi abstract art trend "Macchiaioli" indigenous to the city of Livorno.
    More recently, Mario moved to a spectacular cottage in the enchanting Pisa countryside, where he dedicates his time between his passion of painting and his new love, making wine. The wine is called Malacoda, a pure merlot of distinct ruby color, and of complex and refined bouquet. Mario Madiai is the first artist vintner to hand-paint each label, creating a unique object with each bottle.
