B.1838, Brescia, d. 1902, Varese
Trained by Nicolo Bianchi (1796-1881) in Genoa, he subsequently worked in Paris, and then in Florence from 1866 as curator of the Cherubini Conservatoire collection. His instruments are strongly built in the style of Stradivari and Guarneri, generally with a full arching springing straight from the edge, and an appropriately heavy, flatly cut scroll. The varnish is of good quality often of a red or red-brown colour. The sound of the instruments is generally powerful and much appreciated.
