He collected a group of works in another Milanese gallery, in 1931, giving Aldo Carpi a cue to write in the preface of the catalog: "His villages are lively and tasty, his brushwork is broad and immediate, his compositions simple and fully suited to his character. He is a painter who knows his strengths and he adheres to them without expecting, as many do, to occupy all positions, even the most unexpected ».
