He represented mostly hunting scenes, jousts of the citadine bourgeoisie of Tuscany. 32 sonnets are attributed to him, written around 1308-1316. The most famous ones are the corone dedicated to the days of the week and the months. The language was a derivation of the Provençal[disambiguation needed] then ruling in Italian poetry. Others had an anti-Ghibelline satirical tone.
His corone were later satirized by Cenne della Chitarra.
Little more is known about his life: he is cited in a document in 1295 and other sources date his death to 1332.
