Pedroni, Pietro an Italian painter, was born at Pontremoli, in the Florentine territory. He first studied at Florence, and afterwards at Parma and Rome. He executed a few excellent works for the churches at Florence, and in his native place; but, in consequence of ill-health, he opened an academy under the protection of the senator Martelli, which produced many able artists. "If not a rare painter," says Lanzi, "he was at least an able master, profound in theory and eloquent in conveying knowledge to his pupils, of whom history will treat in the ensuing age. Their success, their affection and esteem for Pedroni, is the best eulogium on him which I can transmit to posterity." He died in 1803.
