Milani, Aureliano nephew of the following, was born at Bologna, Italy, in 1675. He painted in the style of Caracci, and, next to Carlo Cignani, no one did more to maintain the dignity and credit of the Bolognese school. Lanzi says he was not so excellent in his coloring. His principal works in Bologna are the Resurrection, in the church of La Purita; the Stoning of St. Stephen, in St.
Mascarella; and St. Jerome, in Sta. Maria della Vita. He afterwards went to Rome, where his finest work is the Beheading of St. John the Baptist, in the church of the Bergamaschi. He died in 1749. See Lanzi, History of Painting, transl. by Roscoe (London, 1847, 3 volumes, 8vo), 3:152.
