Raimondo Roberti grew up in post World War II Naples. His family's villa was close to the home of the artist G. Gigante, one of the foremost exponents of classical Neopolitan painting known as the School of Posillipo, which exerted a strong influence on Roberti. As a young man Roberti spent time in the United Sates at the Hudson River School of Painting returning to Rome where he completed his studies in architecture and art history.
Roberti is acknowledged for his vibrant port scenes of the Southern Italian coastline. He is a master at capturing the scale and drama of the Amalfi coast and the Bay of Naples. His paintings are often taken from high vantage points allowing the viewer to visually experience the rugged terrain and scenic beauty that is the artist's heritage. Roberti is represented in Naples, Florence, USA and New Zealand.
