Trained as a painter and a sculptor, Lazzari fashions unusual narrative sculptures of a rare complexity and beauty.

He incorporates selfportraits in many of the works, which have something of a renaissance quality to them, yet borrow also from Giacometti and other modern masters. Charming, intriguing, witty and exquisitely sculpted, his bronzes have a keen international following. Lazzari’s work in bronze work embodies two different worlds. The tradition of representing objects from nature, along with a multitude of Italian and wider European artistic traditions. He is particularly inspired by the sixteenth century, such as the Paduan workshop bronzes. The compositions of his earlier bronze work shown in an exhibition in 2006 were likened to medieval fountain jesters as well as half-formed gargoyles of gothic edifices.
