His oratorio L'innocenza trionfante was performed in Genoa at Ss Annunziata in 1660, and several collections of motets were published in Rome during the mid 1670s. But it was not until 1672 that he produced his first (and most popular) opera, Caligula delirante (text by Gioberti), at the Teatro SS Giovanni e Paolo in Venice, followed by Lisimaco (text by Ivanovich) the next year. ...
