Enzo Plazzotta (29 May 1921 – 12 October 1981) was an Italian-born British sculptor.
Enzo Plazzotta died in October 1981 after a short illness borne with exceptional fortitude. Although he lived in London for more than thirty years and established his reputation primarily in Britain and the English-speaking countries of the world, he never renounced his Italian nationality.
He worked mainly in bronze, his tactile skill and delicate workmanship finding clay and wax more congenial than stone. He will undoubtedly be remembered for his bronze statuettes, lovingly sculpted and greatly treasured for the aesthetic pleasure they give their owners.
His Italian origin was clearly stated in his devotion to beauty as well as his pursuit of a constant and faultless technique which he owed as much to his pre-war training at the Accademia di Brera in Milan as to his deep attachment to the Italian classical tradition. He enjoyed considerable esteem, especially in Britain and the USA. In London his works were frequently exhibited at some of the best galleries including Wildenstein, who also represented him in New York.
