Born in 1941 in Florence, Bruno Vivoli studied engraving under Romano Calamai and Marcello Sacchi.

He has participated in exhibitions at Santa Croce, San Frediano and, most recently, in the exhibition held November, 2001, by the artists of the Repubblica di San Procolo, in honour of Fioretta Mazzei, in the English Cemeteryís Gatehouse, Piazzale Donatello 38, 50132 Florence.
 

Bruno Vivoliís engraving of Dante teaching the Commedia to Florence is used as the logo to the international congresses held in Florence, 2001, 2002, 2004, The City and the Book.
 

An artist from Norway has printed Bruno Vivoliís engravings of the Madonna and Child at the Santa Reparata International School of Art, Via San Gallo, Florence.
