Born in Rome in 1929, Mario Doretti was an Italian painter and architect. After classical studies he attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, then did a degree in Architecture at the University of Rome, where he also graduated in Art History. When he married his Israeli wife in 1971 and moved to Israel in 1974, he devoted himself to painting. He held many exhibitions in Israel, Italy and the US. Mario has sadly passed away, but his work is lovingly sold by the gallery on behalf of his daughter, Liora Ofer who lives in Barrydale, near Swellendam South Africa.
