Giovanni Prini (Genoa 1877 - Rome 1958), sculptor, painter, craftsman, moved from Genoa to Rome at the beginning of the 20th century. His house-studio on Via Nomentana became a coterie of intellectuals and artists, such as Duilio Cambellotti, Umberto Boccioni, Cipriano Efisio Oppo, Sibilla Aleramo, Gino Severini, Ettore Ximenes, Antonio Maraini and Giacomo Balla.

One of the most significant sculptors of the Italian 20th century, in addition to his major production consisting of oils, drawings, marbles and bronzes, he boasts an equally rich production in the applied arts: ceramics, furniture and toys.

His participation in the first edition of the International Exhibition of Decorative Arts in Monza in 1923 is important. Present at the Quadriennali in Rome and the Biennali in Venice, over the years he also devoted himself to large sculpture works for public buildings, many of which were designed by Marcello Piacentini. In 1932 he was appointed Academician of San Luca.
