After earning a degree in architecture he continued engraving, devoting himself particularly to etching, traveling also to Holland to study Rembrandt. He has a corpus of 90 engravings, with etching his preferred technique. Stylistically neo-classical, he is in the Florentine Purist schools, which is figurative and perspectival, and belongs to the figurative movement Academia Nova.
