The fortuitous discovery of a painting by Angelo Gottarelli allowed us to identify, thanks to some notes present on the wooden frame, the subject represented: the architect Giovanni Felice Magistretti. Known as ‘milanese’, he was the heir of Guglielmo and Giovanni Magistretti (the latter was his father), they were natives of Torricella in Ticino, master-masons, sometimes indicated as architects active in the Imola territory in the wake of Alfonso Torreggiani and Cosimo Morelli. Giovanni Felice (1742-1821), portrayed by Gottarelli in 1781, for the occasion of the renovation works inside the Imola’s Cathedral, was a plasterer, an architect and an engineer. The analysis of the bibliographical documents allowed us to reconstruct, for the first time, his career as a sculptor and a technician, relating it to the other representatives from the family. Among these, in addition to the above mentioned, the son: the architect and engineer Giovanni Giuseppe (1775-1859), author, moreover, of the famous ‘Napoleonic’ Theatre of Imola, and the theoretical and architectural treatiser Biagio (1779-1846), author of Lezioni elementari di architettura civile (published in Milan in two volumes in 1843) and of the study Sull’arte del vedere le opere di architettura civile (published in 1846).
