A pupil of Pécheux at the Accademia in Turin (1779-82), he painted the portraits of Pécheux and his wife with their children (1783). In Rome in 1784, he embarked on a career about which we still know relatively little. He was back in Turin in 1799, where he remained for a few years. Close to the circle of David, he was a painter of ancient history scenes, both sacred and profane. The director of the Accademia J.B. Wicar in Naples from 1806 to 1809, he sent works to Turin (Portrait of Charles Felix and Maria Christina, 1816, Agliè).
