Giovanni Battista Fiorini was a native of Bologna. He flourished at the close of the 16th century, and died subsequently to 1595. He is chiefly known as a coadjutor of Cesare Aretusi, in conjunction with whom he painted several pictures at Bologna and Brescia, and distinguished himself especially as a good designer and a happy inventor. By him there are the following works:

  • Bologna, Cathedral. Christ giving the Keys to St. Peter.
  • Bologna, San Giovanni in Monte. Birth of the Virgin
  • Bologna, San Benedetto. The Descent from the Cross.
  • Bologna, Padri Servi. The Mass of St. Gregory.
  • Brescia, S. Afra. The Birth of the Virgin.
  • Rome, Sala Regia, Vatican. A small painting by Fiorini alone.
