Domenico Inganni

Once in a while, a sculptor becomes the subject of a sculpture. Mats Åberg created this bronze sculpture "Domenico Inganni" in 1997. See for yourself outside the shopping mall in Huddinge.

He is a monster, Mats Åberg hates him or he is an inept sculptor.
I know an Angelo Inganni, a 18th century painter, only because when I worked in Milan the last stop of the subway Red Line was 'Inganni'. Which, by the way, in Italian means 'frauds'.
Do you know if they are related?

Not to worry. The spotlight in combination with my angle created a semi-dramatic effect. I rather liked it!

As far as I can see, Domenico came to Sweden at the age of 15. He later became a teacher at the University College of Fine Arts and he died in 1988.

It is a quite rare surname here, maybe they are somewhat related.

Entirely possible although I haven't been able to confirm this. Then again, my insight into the history of art is very much limited...

My interest for Inganni was strictly linked to my commuting in Milan. After few times you begin to ask yourself why a station is called in that way...
