Key to Umbria

Francesco Trevisani was born in Capodistria, near Trieste, which was then part of the Venetian Empire.  He trained in Venice before moving to Rome in ca. 1678.  He established a successful career there, and remained there until his death.

His students included Francesco Appiani and Ludovico Mazzanti.
