- Not the -same- person as Stamegna, though? Spelling was easy-going in those days, could easily have been and they died in the same year in the same place. Is one certain that one was born around 1640 and the other around 1615? Eric 15:57, 12 August 2012 (EDT)
- In fact, OPAC-SBN / Italian National Library (Naples?) seems to assume they're the same person and files works by both under Stamegna. Eric 09:47, 24 January 2013 (EST)
