SPADINO (CASTELLI), Italian family of painters

Archival research has revealed the existence of three painters, all members of the Castelli family, who specialized in still-life painting: two brothers, Bartolomeo (also called il Vecchio, the Elder) and Giovanni Paolo (called Spadino), and the latter's son, Bartolomeo (called il Giovane, the Younger, to distinguish him from his uncle). Like his father, Bartolomeo was also known as Spadino.
