He was born in Verona probably around 1850 and died here in 1915. He had an important career. In 1900, he sang at the Costanzi in Rome in Ebrea, Lucia di Lammermoor, Elisir d'Amore and Barbiere di Siviglia . In the last years he was singing as comprimario. After his retirement, he taught singing and his students included the baritone Rizzardo Da Ferrara. His repertory included: Ballo in Maschera - Ebrea - Attila - Traviata - Barbiere di Siviglia - Rigoletto - Isora di Provenza di L.Mancinelli - Tannhauser - Mefistofele - Ernani - Lucrezia Borgia - Apoteosi di G.Rossini - Forza del Destino - Cavalleria Rusticana - Janko di P.Bandini - Favorita - Luisa Miller - L'Entrata di Cristo in Gerusalemme di A.Ambrogi - Elisir d'Amore - Lucia di Lammermoor. His recordings suffer from poor recording techniques.

I wish to thank Roberto Marcocci for the biographical information and Julian Philip Myerscough for the recording and for the Lucrezia Borgia discographical information.
