Born in Venice in 1834. He was a pupil of Pompeo Marino Molmenti. He first dealt with the historical framework, following the trend of the time. Two of his works in this first way are: The death of Fra Paolo Sarpi and Lo Scrano nella Porta della Carta, which were reproduced by the Promoting Society for its members. So he specialized and dealt almost exclusively, and successfully, with decorative painting. He decorated two ceilings in the Royal Palace of Venice; a ceiling in the Palazzo Spinelli; a ceiling and the dining room of Palazzo Papadopoli; the atrium, a hall and the library of the Simiè palace near Nice; he painted frescoes and decorations in the church of the Saint in Padua; in the Loredan palace in San Vio; in the Albergo Europa in Venice; and for numerous churches in the Veneto region. His work is also the curtain of the Teatro La Fenice in Venice, where he portrayed Justinian returning to his homeland with the news of the victory of the battle of Lepanto. Some genre paintings of him appeared in Milan, Turin. Florence: This is how the wine goes in the harvest; Waiting; Flowers to the Holy Virgin; Be dear to your grandfather; Venetian commoner; Waiting for the fish to bite; The fish seller.
