Painter and caricaturist, drawing professor. Early designer, at the age of fourteen he was sent to Naples at the Royal Institute of Art. The expenses were borne by two local patrons, Baron Cessa and Diego Badarò, who awarded him six ducats a month. He soon passed to painting and nude classes, winning prizes and receiving the praises of his masters, including Maldarelli and Postiglione. Arrested for political conspiracy (his family belonged to the Young Italy), he was ordered to leave Naples. I did not comply with the order by hiding with a friend. In 1859 he was part of the secret or action committee and in 1860 he participated in the revolutionary movements that favored the entry of Garibaldi into Naples.

Taking leave of the Mobile National Guards, Noah's Ark was hired as a caricaturist editor in the newspaper, becoming very popular. He then directed another newspaper, The Last Judgment, and finally landed at the Stenterello.

In 1885 he obtained the chair of design at the Technical School Giambattista Della Porta in Naples. He left many original caricature albums, among which I Cinquecento the Italian Parliament, Eighty Municipal Councilors of the Palazzo San Giacomo, Provincial Councilors of Naples, Contemporanei, etc. This artwork is shipped from Italy.
