(b. 1790, Verona, d. 1835, Havana)


Italian sculptor. Little is known from the life of the artist, except that he came from Verona, Italy, was presumably a pupil of Canova, and died in Cuba. Between 1822 and 1832 he was in the United States, where he left behind a number of reliefs and statues as well as an equestrian statue of George Washington erected in Baltimore in 1826. Between 1823 and 1827 he was engaged on developing reliefs for the Capitol in Washington.
