Descendent of a noble family of Imola , he began his artistic career at a very young age. He carried on with his personal style until his death.
He led a very sheltered life, and he is best taken into consideration for his paintings where colour and paintbrushes vividly recall the countryside of the Romagna region with refined elegance.
His works have been exhibited at the Biennial of Venice in 1914 and in 1926. There have been many paintings left by the artist in the many churches of Imola.
