This website is dedicated to the works of Carlo Antonio Baratelli. I'm hoping to use this page to learn more about him. The things I'd really like to know:
1) Where he was born, and his birth certificate (I'm narrowing this down...Varese seems like a sure bet, and is probably either Casale Litta or Besano).
2) Pictures or information about his works (see lnks below for what I have...I'm clearly missing a lot)
3) Any other interesting information about him (everything I know is on this site)
