Chris Fabbri’s Grandfather, Joseph Febo Fabbri, born and raised in Rimini, Central Italy, Emilia-Romagna, was an artist, producing a number of drawings in the 1920s. Joseph came to America early 1927 and eventually gave Chris the drawings that he produced. Each piece has an art school ink stamp and are kept in a private collection. Chris visited his grandfather when he was living in Southern Maine in the 1980s, to draw and paint the landscape.
