Biography: Aspetti, who came from a Paduan family that included sculptors and bronze casters, moved to Venice in his youth to assist Girolamo Campagna, one of the best sculptors of that city.

Antonio, Padua. During his later years Aspetti settled in Tuscany, working chiefly in Pisa and Florence. Source: Art in The Frick Collection: Paintings, Sculpture, Decorative Arts, New York: Harry N.
