Description: Vito Salvotore Puccini lived and died a poor man. He was born 1898 in Roccelletta. A southern city in Borgia Italy. His father was unknown to his mother and his mother died while giving birth to Vito. Vito's grandfather then raised Vito for as long as he could before sadly in the beginning of 1916 dying because of World War I's North Africa Campaign (1914–1918). Vito then was on his own at the age of 18 years old. He suffered from depression throughout his life. Vito then became a farmer but learned how to paint in school at a younger age. His painting stayed with him throughout his entire life. Most of Vito Salvotore Puccini works have been lost to time. But one painting housed in private hands in Borgia Italy has spoken to many. Said to be his greatest work ever called "IL Pagliaccion Triste"(The Sad Clown) watercolor on canvas painted in 1913 as a gift to the governor of Borgia. Amazingly this painting was painted before his grandfathers death in 1916. But the painting in which depicts a very sad yellow clown must reflect how he felt about never meeting his mother. Vito Salvotore Puccini died then in 1943 in southern Italy (at the age of 45 years old) do to starvation because of World war II.
