Born into a noble Genoese family, he joined the Vallombrosan order in his youth, and took holy vows on April 15, 1609. He graduated in theology from the University of Pavia and quickly became a guiding light of the Order, being elected to the council of the two congregations of the Inquisition and Propaganda Fide. For several years he held the post of lecturer in Passignano and Astino, and after being made an abbot governed several monasteries. He died on November 16, 1652 in Marradi, while serving there as abbot of Santa Reparata, and was buried in Vallombrosa.
