Born in Ferrara on April 17, 1862, died in Forlì on December 4, 1925. Initiated into scientific studies in Naples, he managed to get himself kicked out of school for having drawn the profile of Garibaldi, almost under the nose of a Bourbon professor. He enrolled in the Academy and studied under the guidance of Morelli, but then followed the directives of Michetti. In 1883 he exhibited his painting Alla spade in Brera, now in the Landscape Museum of Pallanza. He later took part in the National Exhibition of Fine Arts in Rome, and between 1885 and 1889 he too appeared in Dresden, Munich and Vienna. He obtained a silver medal in Nice in 1884 and another in Ferrara in 1885. Other works by him: I Mietitori, formerly owned by comm.
