Giuseppe Moretti


February 3, 1857, Siena, Italy – February 1935, San Remo

Giuseppe Moretti was an Italian émigré sculptor who became known in America for his public monuments in bronze and marble.

Most notable among his works is Vulcan in Birmingham, Alabama, which is the largest cast iron statue in the world.

On a personal level, Moretti was known for his eclectic personality and for always wearing a green tie, but professionally, is claimed to be the first man to use aluminum in art.
