He initially studied in Ferrara with Gaetano Domenichini. He later studied at the Academy of Fine Arts of Florence. His first work was a Church Interior, displayed at the Promotrice. In 1887, he sent to the Exposition of Venice, the canvases depicting the Church of Santa Maria Novella, and the genre painting Donne e Madonne. In 1888 at Bologna, he exhibited: Tempo ladro and Fra i polli. In 1889 at the Florence Promotrice, he displayed the oil canvas, Le lavandaie and a pastel, Il fiammiferaio. At the Pisani Gallery of Florence, he exhibited watercolor and pastel works. He also painted portraits in Ferrara. He completed illustrations for books and journals, and completed a number of watercolors depicting vedute of Rome, Pompeii, and Florence.

The British collections include two local views: Westminster Bridge at Lancaster City Museums, and Hampstead Heath at Sheffield Museum.
