The article aims to complete the analysis of the artistic career of the modenese painter Camillo Gavasetti (Modena 1595 - Reggio Emilia 1630) through the study of his works, the analysis of already known documents and the retrieval of new attestations, starting from 1624 when Gavasetti managed to obtain the decoration of the presbytery of the Piacentine church of Sant’Antonino. Following this assignment, the painter moved permanently to the Duchy of Parma and Piacenza where he enjoyed some success: this is evidenced by both the inventories of the most important private collections of Piacenza and by the Farnese family collection itself. In addition, he received important commissions from religious institutions both in the Duchy and in Reggio Emilia, such as the fresco decoration he carried out in the Basilica della Ghiara. Furthermore, the attribution of various works to the artist allows us to clarify even more his activity which proves to be of excellent quality, as in the case of the canvas depicting Sofonisba drinking poison (Intesa Sanpaolo collection).
