Among his best-known works is a frescoed view of Paradise on the cupola of Santa Maria del Quartiere in Parma.[2] Another renowned fresco is the Assumption for a chapel at the church of San Martino at Traversetolo.[3] There are other works by this master at the Carmelites, and at other public places in Parma.
