Born in Milan in 1831, died there on 7 February 1882. He was a disciple of Giovanni Renica. In 1860 he succeeded Zimmermann in the chair of landscape at the Brera Academy in Milan. He brought new and effective concepts into teaching. He used to take his pupils to the countryside to copy from life; and in this way he undoubtedly contributed to the revival of the Lombard school of landscape. The Gallery of Modern Art in Milan owns by him: Stagno; Navy; Channel of Ischia; Surroundings of Milan; Mountain Road; Lake Landscape; Road with mountains background; Island in the Tyrrhenian Sea; Alpine landscape. Other notable private works: The descent of Berengario in Italy; Landscape; A street in Milan.
