(active from 1899 circa to 1933 circa)
An amateur photographer who documented, with passion and livelihood for instant shots, Italy’s aristocracy from the late 19th century, he was keenly curious in art but also in the country’s social and economic life. In fact, his “photo notes” could be called handy sketches of impressionist realism. His archive, which boasts 6,500 negatives on small-format plates, 1,200 negatives on film, and circa 1,100 diapositives on glass in black and white, is now part of the Alinari Archives. His detailed notes that accompany the materials allow us to date the pictures between 1899 and 1933.
