Biography

A painter. After studying in Paris and Nice, he settled in Turin with his father Domenico, who in 1854 was appointed "Architect and Decorator of the Royal Palaces". An exponent of moderate Italian Romanticism, in 1855 he was chosen to represent the State of Savoy at the Universal Exhibition in Paris, and in 1856 he obtained the chair of Painting at the Accademia Albertina, from which he stepped down in 1871. His paintings are now in the Royal Palace in Turin.
