Dario Zucchi was born in Milan, Italy in 1938. After earning his degree in economics at the Universita’ Bocconi in Milan, he worked in international real estate development and investment in Italy, Switzerland, Canada, and Mexico. In 1979 he moved to the United States where he is still professionally active in the Washington D.C. area.
Dario Zucchi has had an enduring interest in photography and art. During the past fifteen years, he has developed his talents as a photographer, exploring both the natural world and the world of museum and gallery visitors. From 2000 until 2010 his work was regularly shown in group exhibitions in the Washington regional area. For the last five years he has achieved important successes in major exhibitions beginning with I Fratelli Zucchi, shown in 2010 at the Arts Club of Washington and in the 2010 ArtconFusion show at the Antico Oratorio della Passione at the Basilica of Sant’Ambrogio in Milan. These early successes led to major retrospective exhibitions, The Absorbing Eye at the Museo della Grafica in Pisa in 2012, and An Unexpected Smile in the Castello of Casale Monferrato in 2014, both accompanied by fully-illustrated catalogues. In 2013, Zucchi also had one-man shows at the Embassy of Italy in Washington, D.C and in the village of Teguise on Lanzarote in the Canary Islands. In 2015 Zucchi exhibited at the Arts Club in Washington again with The Eye of the Beholder. In 2017 Dario had another major retrospective in Italy at the Villa Giulia, in Verbania, and most recently in 2018 he showed 60 photographs in the exhibition The Unexpected Smile at The Mansion at Strathmore, in North Bethesda, Maryland.
