Sergio Rossetti Morosini (born in 1953) is a Brazilian-American artist and author of Venetian extract.[3] He has served Brazil as Cultural attaché in New Orleans and is dedicated to preserving the Atlantic Forest and restoring the art in stone of the Historic New York City Landmarks.[4][5]

Early life[edit]

Sergio Rossetti Morosini is the middle of five children born to parents Italia Morosini and Pedro Rossetti, descendants of two old Venetian families[6] that settled in the Atlantic Forest in Southern Brazil.[7] Sergio grew up in the city of Guarapuava,[8] in the heart of the state of Paraná's Araucaria Forest.[9]

Education[edit]

Sergio is educated in economics, diplomacy, and holds master's degrees in Fine Arts and History of Art from the Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY.[10]

Career and marriage[edit]

In his early 20s he represented Brazil in United States as a Cultural Attaché at the Consulate General in New Orleans, Louisiana.[11] There, while he was enrolled in the Graduate Program of Tulane University's Department of Social Sciences, he met the artist, Adèle,[12] then, a Fine Arts student at Tulane's Newcomb College. They were married in 1976; he was 22 and she was 21.

International affairs[edit]

Sergio's tenure at the Consulate, however, coincided with the 1973 Oil Crisis which increased several times Brazil's Trans-Amazonian Highway construction costs and brought in the Brazil financial crisis of the late 1970s. Through numerous cultural events, and partnerships with Loyola and Tulane Universities, and later with the newly founded New Orleans Area Latin American Chamber of Commerce,[13] he worked diligently with New Orleans Mayor Moon Landrieu's administration, the International Relations Office,[14][15] the International Trade Mart, and the Board of Commissioners of the Port of New Orleans to unite the Latin American businesses behind a comprehensive trade policy through the ports of New Orleans and Gulfport-Biloxi, Mississippi. Sergio was conferred the title of "Honorary State Senator" by the Lieutenant Governor, James Edward "Jimmy" Fitzmorris, Jr., Coordinator of International Relations and President of the Louisiana State Senate.[16]

Cultural institutes[edit]

He is a founding member of the Brazilian-American Cultural Institute of New Orleans (BACI).[17] and The Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce of New Orleans.[18]

The Vatican[edit]

Sergio has been invited twice to the Vatican to view from the scaffolding, the restoration of the frescoes Michelangelo painted on the Sistine, the private Chapel of the Pope. First, in early Fall 1987, as a guest of the Agnelli family and the curator of the Vatican Museums, Fabrizio Mancinelli, during the Restoration and controversy of the ceiling,[19] and later, in the Summer of 1992, to view the restoration of The Last Judgment with Dr. Diana Gisolfi of the Pratt Institute, as guests of Marilyn Perry,[20] president of the Kress Foundation and the Head Restorer for Papal Monuments, Museums and Galleries, Gianluigi Colalucci.[21]

Art historical contribution[edit]

First to observe that in 1511, Titian described the volume in a two-dimensional fresco painting of Saint Anthony's Miracle of the Jealous Husband, in the Scuola del Santo, Padua, Italy, by actually sculpting it in relief rather than describing it illusionistically.[22][23][24][25][26][27][28]

Works in stone[edit]

He is devoted to the conservation of the Art in the New York City Landmarks.[29] Among his works are the Charles Millard Pratt House, 241 Clinton Ave, Brooklyn’s Clinton Hill Historic District, now the home of the Roman Catholic Bishop of Brooklyn,[30] the Brockholst building at 101 W 85th Street, and Columbus Avenue, NY, NY 10024,[31][32] and his Bust of Michelangelo Buonarroti above the door of the National Arts Club,[33] 15 Gramercy Park South, New York, NY 10003, both a New York City Landmark and a National Historic Landmark.[34][35][36]

Environmental work[edit]

Sergio is currently shooting a documentary on the endangered ecosystems of the Atlantic Forest of Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina.[37][38][39][40][41] In Spring 2007, he moved his Studios from Brooklyn to Poughkeepsie, in the Hudson Valley, NY.[42]
