At the beginning of the thirties he was called by Tullio d'Albisola to collaborate with the production of artistic ceramics "M.G.A.", owned by Giuseppe Mazzotti, where he made a series of plastics in the futurist-caricature style of excellent technical and qualitative level, in addition to some work of greater commitment such as a relief entitled "Crocefissione".
In 1930, with other artists including Tullio Mazzotti, Edoardo Alfieri, Dino Gambetti, Alf Gaudenzi, Luciano Lombardo, Lelio Pierro and Libero Verzetti, he founded the Gruppo Artisti Sintesi di Genova.
In 1931 he participated in the Futurist Exhibition of Chiavari where he presented ceramics and paintings.

In 1943 he was appointed Accademico di merito della Ligustica and in 1967 he became a member of the Italian Archaeological Academy in Rome.
He died in Sestri Ponente in 1983.
