In cooperation with Federico he constructed the effective “Crispino e la comare,” 1850. Various other successes included “Chiara di Rosembergh,” 1831 that was “the” well-known preferred in the 10 years, and “El avventura di Scaramuccia,” 1834. One of is own last operettas can be memorable due to the oft repeated tarantella. This dance is situated in “La festa di Piedigrotta,” (1852). His functions characteristically demonstrated complete control over the conventions of that time period highlighted with periodic harmonic ingenuity, regular usage of folk music, and lively and lilting melodies in duple meters.
