Giuseppe Mazzuoli (c. 1536 – 1589)
He is nicknamed il Bastaruolo (or il Bastarolo by authors writing in English), from a dialect term describing his father's profession selling foodstuffs, including corn (biade). He painted the ceiling of the church of the Gesu in Ferrara, a work started by Giovanni Francesco Surchi. Mazzuoli was reportedly a pupil of Dosso Dossi, and the teacher of Carlo Bononi and Domenico Moni. Among his works were some altarpieces for the Cathedral of Ferrara.
