Lucio Marliani, called Piccinino (1538 - 1607)
Biography
Works of Art

Lucio Piccinino was described by Paolo Morigia in his 'La nobilta di Milano (1595) as being the son of the famous swordsmith Alessandro Piccinino, who died in 1589, and brother of Federigo, another swordsmith. Morigia writes that he 'works in relief on iron and silver, whether in grotesque figures or other strange animal forms (and in) leaf-work and landscapes he is most excellent, and particularly skilful in his damascening, and has made some outstanding armours for His Serene Highness the Duke of Parma, Alessandro Farnese, and for other Princes which are regarded as rare objects.' He was still working at the time Morigia was writing.
