He had a vocation as a young man, but his father did not allow him to continue his studies at the seminary. After the death of his father at 23, he continued the studies. He became assistant priest at Ragoli and Breguzzo for nine years. He then entered our congregation and was always very zealous in his ministry, specialising in moral theology.  Fr Lenotti loved him in a special way and called him to stay close to him at his death bed.

He was caught by sudden paralysis while preaching the Spiritual Exercises in the Seminary of Trento, and died soon after.
