Giovanni Ascione, born in 1915 in Torre del Greco near Naples, entered his family’s renowned business, “Giov. Ascione e Figlio,” at the age of twenty. This company, established in 1855, specialized in the production and sale of coral and cameo artifacts, typical of the industrious town at the foot of Mount Vesuvius.

After pursuing classical and artistic studies at the Benedectine College of Montecassino and the Royal School of Engraving in Torre del Greco, Ascione furthered his education in commerce and languages in Switzerland at Maria Hilf College in Schwitz.

Upon his return to Italy around 1935, Giovanni Ascione brought his artistic sensibility and knowledge to the established family business. His works can be found in various locations in Italy and abroad, ranging from Casa Ascione Museum in Naples and the historic manufacture in Torre del Greco to the Vatican, Pompeii Sanctuary Museum, Malta, Ohio, Montecassino Museum, Naples Cathedral crypt, Otranto, Noto, Pozzuoli, Verona, and Cleveland in the United States.
