Salvatore Fiume (Comiso, 23 October 1915 - Milan, 3 June 1997) was an Italian painter. He was also a sculptor, architect, writer and set designer.
Salvatore Fiume was born in Comiso, Sicily, on 23 October 1915. At the age of sixteen, thanks to his talent and passion for art, he won a scholarship to attend the Regio Istituto d'Arte del Libro in Urbino, where he learned the techniques of printing, from engraving to lithography. After finishing his studies in 1936, he moved to Milan, where he came into contact with intellectuals and artists of the stature of Salvatore Quasimodo, Dino Buzzati and Raffaele Carrieri.
At the age of twenty-three, in 1938, Fiume moved to Ivrea, where he became art director of a cultural magazine wanted and followed by Adriano Olivetti, Tecnica e organizzazione; during these years he produced his first literary work, the novel Viva Gioconda!, published in Milan in 1943 by the publisher Bianchi-Giovini.
Wanting to devote himself above all to painting, although the literary milieu he frequented was stimulating, in 1946 he left Ivrea to settle in Canzo, not far from Como, in a former 19th-century silk mill where he began his intense and multifaceted research not only in painting, but also in sculpture and architecture.
In the same year, in Milan, he presented a series of tempera and Indian ink drawings to the poet and art critic Raffaele Carrieri as well as to the painter and writer Alberto Savinio, brother of the now famous metaphysical painter Giorgio de Chirico, who were enthusiastic about them.
