Otto Monestier (1918-1997) was an Italian artist and sculpturer. Self-taught, he started working in publishing and advertising as a graphic designer. He continued this activity for all his life long, while at the same time working as an artist with many different media: painting, drawing, sculpture. He renovates historical pieces and designs his own. He conceived the "movable sculpture", among which the most famous example is "Eva", a sculpture presented in 1969 at the 46th Art Biennale in Venice.
