He had an important career in Italy, with guest appearances in Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Madrid, Barcelona or Marseille. Still
in 1900, he sang at the Costanzi in Rome in La Juive, Lucia di Lammermoor, Elisir d'amore and Barbiere di
Siviglia. After his 1901 retirement, he taught singing, and his students included the baritone Rizzardo Da Ferrara. His
repertory was vast: Almaviva, Ernani, Riccardo,
Manrico, Don Alvaro, Don Carlo, Poliuto, Fernand, Éléazar, Alfredo, Duca, Foresto, Faust (in Mefistofele, Faust and
Damnation de Faust), Tannhäuser, Lohengrin, Radames, Raoul, Vasco da Gama, Enzo Grimaldo, Edgardo, Idreno, Ruy Blas, Don
José, Turiddu, Nemorino, and many others. His recordings suffer from poor recording techniques (and from his advanced age).|
