Davide Calandra (21 October 1856 - 8 September 1915) was an Italian sculptor and cabinet maker. Davide Calandra was born in Turin into a wealthy family. His father, besides his professional activities of lawyer and hidraulic engineer, was an archaeologist and a well known collector of ancient weapons. Davide's eldest brother, the writer Edoardo Calandra, is the author of the novel La bufera, a famous example of historical fiction. After attending the Liceo Calandra followed the art lectures of the Accademia Albertina and then joined as a volunteer the cavalry where he attained the military rank of Sottotenente (Sub-Lieutenant). In 1878 he worked with his father and his brother to an excavation of the Lombard archaeological site of Testona (Moncalieri). Calandra began his sculptor activity in 1880, when he showed his work Penelope at the Turin's Esposizione di Belle Arti (fine arts exhibition). In 1902 he established with his fellow artists Leonardo Bistolfi, Giorgio Ceragioli, Enrico Reycend and Enrico Thovez L'arte decorativa moderna, a journal devoted to decorative arts.show more
