Born in 1513, he entered the Servite order in the cloister of the Annunziata.
Meantime the Servite brothers of the Annunziata were growing impatient for the completion of their altar-piece.
He died before this work was completed, of hydropsy, and was buried in the Servite Church.
Pretending to be repentant and charitable, he sent poisoned bread and wine to the Servite monastery.
The money was a thank-offering from a woman for having been absolved from a vow by one of the Servite priests.
