In those same years he exhibited at the Independent Salon in Paris. After the First World War he was present at the First Roman Biennale (1921) and at the Florentine Spring exhibition of 1922 where Cardi by the sea and Contadina from the surroundings of Zara were exposed. In the first edition of the dictionary painters Comanducci (1934) he is defined as a “lively colourist with a freely pointillist technique”.
