Lombard sculptor, born and resident in Milan, has exhibited some of his very expressive bronze statuettes in many of the recent exhibitions, and for their liveliness and movement very appreciable.
In 1880, at the fourth National Exhibition of Fine Arts, in Turin, he had: “La pesca Galante” (bronze statuette) and two other marble statuettes, one representing “Young Shakespeare”, the other “The portrait of the mother “which the last two exhibited again the following year at the Milan Exposition.
In 1883 in the same Milan, three bronze statuettes were admired representing, one “The indiscretion”, the other “Lo spavaldo”, and the third “The sweetness”; and two others in terra cotta representing one “La Massaia” and the other “La questua”, in which works one could see a sufficient affirmation of the uncommon ingenuity and imagination of the artist.
Great craftsmanship and naturalness were then admired in the statues “La Merveilleuse” and “Lo scavento”, which, in the same year 1883, he exhibited in Rome at the Exposition of Fine Arts.
“The arrogant” and “The indiscretion”, bronze statuettes that we have already said to have exhibited in Milan, in 1884, sent to Turin together with the “Mansuetudine”, another bronze statuette, receiving great praise and encouragement.
Also in Livorno, in 1886, he exhibited a bronze statuette entitled: “Acqua di Seltz”; and the following year he sent “L’orgoglio”, a bronze statuette, and the “Vezzosetta”, another beautiful statue which gave the artist great esteem and honor to the National Art Exhibition in Venice.
