Biography

A painter and an important exponent of humanitarian Realism and Divisionism. The son of winegrowers, he moved to Milan in 1884, where he attended the Accademia di Brera, before continuing his restive training in Rome, Florence (where he made friends with Nomellini), and Genoa. In 1892 he again met Nomellini who led him to adopt a divisionist technique, which brought him into contact with Segantini, Morbelli and Grubicy. Between 1896 and 1901 he painted "The Fourth Estate" (Milan, Galleria d'Arte Moderna), a manifesto of civic and artistic commitment. His career ended in suicide.
