Attilio Pratella studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Bologna. He won a scholarship, so he went to Naples to study at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Napoli, where he spent the rest of his life and finally established with his own studio.
His favourite subjects were Naples with its markets and animated waterfronts, along with the neighbouring hills of Vomero, the island of Capri and the coastline of Sorrento. His compositions often show marine and town views and captivate through the impressionist approach.
Attilio Pratella's sons Fausto and Paolo, and his daughter Ada were also painters.
Attilio Pratella’s works are still highly sought after in the international art market and can be found in the main public collections of Naples, Milan and Rome. After Pratella's death, a street in Naples and in Lugo di Romagna was named after him.
