His parents moved to Monza, where his first mentor was the painter Giovanni Maria Gariboldi. At age 21, he moved to Milan, where he worked in the studios of Giorgi, and later Giuliano Traballesi. He was active in restoration of paintings. Another painter, Giuseppe Appiani (Porto, c. 1700-Triefenstein, c. 1785), was active in Germany.
