Ambrogio Borghi (1848-1887) was an Italian sculptor. Born in Nova Milanese, he began his artistic studies at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts, under the guidance of Professor Giovanni Strazza. From an early age he demonstrated incredible talents, obtaining numerous awards and in 1871, winning a scholarship from the Oggioni Foundation, which they allowed them to study for three years in Rome.
Ambrogio then continued to Turin at the Albertina Academy where he was followed by Odoardo Tabacchi . Borghi returns to Milan in 1876 where he begins to work as a sculptor: it is in this period that he realizes some of his most famous works by establishing himself on the European scene.
