Edmondo Bacci was born in Venice on 21 July 1913. After attending the School of Art, in 1932, he enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, where he followed the teachings of Virgilio Guidi; in 1935 he moved to Bologna where he completed his studies with Guido Cadorin, graduating in 1937. Meanwhile, he collaborated with Ettore Tito painting a fresco for the ceiling of the Scalzi church. He began to exhibit his works starting in 1934, participating in the collective exhibitions of the Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation. The paintings of this period already show his particular attention to colour, but it was in the immediate post-war years, that there was a real turning point in Bacci's pictorial production.
After a brief period, in which the artist seems to turn to realism, his style changes under the influence of the New Front of the Arts and in particular of Vedova. Thus the "Fabbriche" series was born, in which Bacci, freeing himself from all external references, changed the usual image of the industrial scenario. In 1945 he held his first personal exhibition at the Galleria del Cavallino in Venice and in 1948, he participated for the first time in the Venice Biennale. In the meantime he adhered to Spatialism, of which he signed the manifesto drawn up by A. G. Ambrogini, on the occasion of the "Spatial Exhibition", held in Venice in 1953 in the Ridotto della Fenice. In this context, Bacci developed his research on colour-light.
In the mid-1950s, he came into contact with Peggy Guggenheim, who supported him by acting as a liaison with numerous collectors. In these years his painting became more texturized, also thanks to the use of mixtures and mortars. He held an important solo show at the Galleria del Cavallino in 1955, and the following year he held his first solo show in the United States, at the Seventy-Five Gallery in New York. In 1957 he exhibited in personal exhibitions at the Galleria del Naviglio in Milan, at the Selecta Art Gallery in Rome, and at the "La Cittadella" Gallery in Ascona (Switzerland); also in 1957 he participated in the exhibition "Between Space and Earth" at the Marlborough Gallery in London. In 1958 he was given an exhibition hall at the Venice Biennale, and in 1959 he was awarded the Venice City Hall Award at the Third Biennial of the Contemporary Italian Engraving. In 1961 he exhibited at the Drian Gallery in London and participated in the exhibition "Neue italienische kunst", at the Galerie 59 in Aschaffenburg; the following year he exhibited at the Frank Perls Gallery in Beverly Hills. In 1972 he made some lithographs for the poetry of Guido Ballo "Il ciè-lo Kàinos". He died in Venice on 16 October 1978.
