Italian painter and architect. He acted as site architect (1645–7) in the building of the Villa Doria-Pamphili, Rome, designed by Algardi, and he himself may have contributed to the design of the gardens. He probably designed the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception in the Cathedral at Tivoli (1656–9), and painted numerous decorative frescoes, e.g. at the Villa Falconieri, Frascati (1672).
