After studies at the Scuola Tecnica and the Belle Arti in Carrera, Italy, Peppino Mangravite left his native country for the United States. Once in America, Mangravite continued his studies at the Cooper Union Art School and the Art Student’s League in New York. He later returned to instruct at both schools. He also taught at the Art Institute of Chicago, Columbia University, the Avon School in Connecticut, Sarah Lawrence College, Ethical Culture School in Connecticut and served as Director of Art Education at Fielding School in Washington, DC. It was teaching that brought Mangravite west to Colorado during 1937 and 1938 when he taught at the Broadmoor Art Academy (forerunner to the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center) in Colorado Springs. He returned to the Broadmoor Academy during the summers of 1946 and 1947 when he served as the Acting Director. He also instructed at the Fountain Valley School in Colorado Springs. Mangravite contributed to several publications including Progressive Education, The Arts, and American Magazine of the Arts. He was member of the Board of Directors of the Artists Equity Association of New York City in the late 1940's and early 1950's.
