Vincenzo degli Azani died on 16 July in 1557. Also known as Vincenzo da Pavia, Vincenzo Aniemolo, Vincenzo degli Azani da Pavia, Il Romano and Vincenzo Romano, he was born in Pavia around 1519. His earliest influences were the works of Perugino and Raphel. He visited Rome (1527-1529), Naples, and Palermo, where he lived until his death and where his most documented work can be found.

His work can now be seen in the Galleria Nazionale della Sicilia, in Palazzo Abatellis in Palermo, and in the Museo Diocesano di Palermo.
