      Piero Dorazio (Rome, June 29, 1927 - Perugia, May 17, 2005) was an Italian painter, who with his painting has contributed since 1945 to the affirmation ofabstractionism in Italy.

      Dorazio was born in Rome where, after completing his classical studies, he studied architecture for four years.

      Very young, in 1944, he met the abstract movement of the capital and began a series of collaborations with his protagonists. Since 1945 he has been a leading exponent of the group's activities Social Art. Together with his friends Lucio Manisco, Mino Guerrini and Achille Perilli he attended Renato Guttuso's studio in the first post-war period, but he soon moved away from the theses of socialist realism and joined the abstract movement.

      In 1947 he was among the signatories of the manifesto of Form group 1, together with Ugo Attardi, Pietro Consagra, Mino Guerrini, Achille Perilli, Antonio Sanfilippo, Giulio Turcato and Carla Accardi. Also in 1947 he won a scholarship from the École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts in Paris, where he will reside for a year.
