Born in Rome on 8 June 1843, died there on 7 March 1921. A pupil of Achille Vertunni at the Accademia di San Luca, and of Mariano Fortuny, having known the works of Morelli, Palizzi and Altamura at the Florence Exposition, he decided to studies by copying from life. He handled the historical picture, the landscape, the genre picture with skill and luck. He traveled to Italy, France, Spain, and England and held important positions at home. He exhibited at the main European exhibitions. «His paintings», says Lancellotti, «are among those of the historical-romantic school of Vannutelli and De Sanctis and the non-superficial impressionism of masters such as Morelli and Celentano».
