(b Milan, 1847; d Magreglio, 1927). Italian silversmith. He was known for his complex designs of flatware, chalices and inkwells. His flatware designed c. 1885 was Renaissance Revival in style, while that designed c. 1887 (Milan, Castello Sforzesco) is more reminiscent of the Mannerism, the handles being adorned with the forms of nymphs and satyrs. Bellosio is also well known for his silver altar for the church of S Marta at Magreglio.
