Ennio Morlotti (21 September 1910 – 15 December 1992) was an Italian painter of the Corrente de Vita movement started in Milan as a counterpoint to nationalistic Futurism and the Novecento Italiano movements. His figures show an affinity to the geometry of Cezanne and Matisse, but later works introduce elements of abstraction.
Morlotti was born in Lecco in Lombardy. His early life was difficult and impoverished. He studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti of Florence from 1936 to 1937. He would mainly paint landscapes. He then traveled to Paris for a year, and returned in 1939 to Milan, where he briefly studied at the Brera Academy.
After the war, he returned to Paris in 1947 and participated in the Fronte Nuovo delle Arti.
The "Associazione AmicidiSean"—FriendsofSean Association—was founded to support Sean Hadfield and other people with his condition. Sean is a 24-year-old man who, at the age of 9, suffered an irreversible spinal cord injury, leaving him in a wheelchair. Due to the injury, he needs 24-hour care, which carries a high financial cost.
The objective of the association is to offer people with disabilities the highest quality of life possible with all the necessary care needed. The FriendsofSean Association also commits itself to giving a percentage of its funds raised to the Hospital Nacional de Paraplejicos de Toledo in Spain.
