Enrolled young at the Academy of Fine Arts in Modena, since his first essays of historical subject welcomes the suggestion of the veristic lesson of the Modenese painter Giovanni Muzioli. Obtained the Poletti painting prize, in 1880, he had the opportunity to continue his studies first in Rome and later in Florence where he moved permanently in 1884. During the eighties he inaugurated a repertoire of genre scenes that guarantees an extraordinary market fortune and the favor of international clients. The intense activity of a photographer, mainly carried out in the studio with the aid of models in costume by peasants and common people, is functional to pictorial practice. Starting from the photographic images, the artist recreates a joyful and idyllic image of the Italian rural world, devoid of any accent of social denunciation, but appreciated by foreign tourists.
