(b Bergamo, 29 Nov. 1797; d Bergamo, 8 Apr. 1848)
Italian composer. He wrote no ballet scores but some of his operas contained ballet divertissements, e.g. Les Martyrs (chor. Coralli, 1840) and La Favorite (chor. Albert, 1840). The music for some of these has later been used by e.g. Howard in Veneziana (1953), Balanchine in Donizetti Variations (1960), and Harkarvy in La Favorita (1969).
