Biography

Italian architect and ornamentalist. He was the most capable interpreter of the neo-Rococo style in the Venice of the 1850s. This style was mixed in nonchalant abandon with Moorish and neo-Renaissance features. His best-known works are the decoration of the four rooms of the Caffè Florian on Piazza San Marco, opened to the public in July 1858.
