Born in Asola in 1843, died in Milan on 11 April 1902. With a subsidy from his municipality he was able to go to Milan and attend the Brera Academy, where he distinguished himself for his ability and industriousness and was awarded several times. In 1866 he voluntarily participated in the War of Independence and fought in Trentino. Returning to the brushes, he began with two portraits and a large painting, The Pompeian bath, notable for its exquisite touch and color. Later he executed many oil and watercolor paintings for the Queen of England, and exhibited at many Italian exhibitions. Although it did not have the unrivaled mixture of Cremona, it came very close to it, and it also had qualities common to Mosè Bianchi. He made the poetic beauty of the roses clearly evident and he was able to achieve excellent results in the paintings depicting nuns. For many years he suffered from arthritic pains that made painting extremely difficult for him, but he endured everything for his beloved art. His paintings are remembered: The roses; Stroll in the garden and Portrait, exhibited in Milan in 1872; From the valleys to the mountain; Portrait of a little girl; At the source and Amenity, presented in the same city in 1881; Good morning; The flowers for the festival; Prima neve and For the name day of the owner, exhibited in 1883; Sin and Prayer, sent to Turin in 1884, and now preserved in the Galleria d'Arte Moderna in Milan, where are also located: Ricordi; The jet of flowers; The month of Mary and At the window.
