Co-founder of the Academy of Umoristi, he studied humanities with the Jesuits, and law in Perugia. He served in the war declared by Clement VIII against Ferrara, and was captain of the horse guards for cardinal Aldobrandini. His wedding in 1600 was celebrated with great pomp, and the poets of the time composed pieces in his honour. After his wife died, he entered religious orders. The academy was formed towards 1602 together with Gasparo Salviani. By 1670, it was discontinued. Clement XI, who had been a member in his youth, tried in vain to restore it in 1717.
