Born in Trieste, from 1905 he actively contributed[1] to his father's works, creating such a harmony that experts now find it difficult to differentiate their work. Like his father and grandfather, Arduino was educated at the school of engineering and at the Brera Academy,[2] and most active in his native town, designing not only houses and palaces, but also monuments[3] (Victory Lighthouse and Virgil's memorial plaque at the mouths of the river Timavo), as well as the interior decoration[4] of the famous ships Saturnia and Vulcania.

He died at Tricesimo in 1946.
