Niccolò Tornioli


Niccolò Tornioli is a Sienese painter who was active, during the first half of the 17th century, mainly in the papal city. Sources, but especially a fairly substantial number of documents, Letters, contracts of allotment, will, asset inventory, coeval testimonies or shortly after the death, have made it possible to reconstruct a tormented personality, rich in multiple interests, ranging from painting, of which he experimented with almost all techniques and media, to sculpture, science, and theater.
