Life and work

Monti was born in Novara. His father was a banker and amateur photographer from Val d'Ossola. His family moved several times as his father was transferred between small towns. He attended Bocconi University in Milan and graduated in Economics in 1930, then worked for a few years in the Piedmont region. His father died in 1936 and shortly afterwards Paolo married Maria Binotti.[5]

From 1939 to 1945 he lived in Mestre near Venice, then moved to Venice proper where he worked at the Regional Agricultural Cooperative and continued his hobby of photography.[5]

He helped found the club La Gondola in 1947 which shortly became a feature of the international avant-garde photography movement. In 1953 Monti became a professional photographer, working mainly with magazines in the field of architecture and design. He helped illustrate over 200 volumes on cities and regions, architects and artists.[5]

Starting in about 1965 he photographed illustrations for the history of Italian literature and also photographed Apennine valleys including the region of Emilia-Romagna. Later his photography related to Italian art history. After 1980 he concentrated on photographically documenting the heritage of Novara,[1]Lake Orta and Val d'Ossola.[5] For this work, in 1981 he was awarded a national Umberto Zanotti Bianco Prize. Monti died in Milan on 29 November 1982.[1]

The Paolo Monti's archive has been declared of notable historical interest by the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities in 2004 and was acquired by the BEIC Foundation in 2008, catalogued and opened to the public.[6][1]
