The most important Italian sculptor before Niccolo da Pisa. In the latter part of the twelfth century he made the three portals of the Baptistery of Parma in the style of the French work of the time and introduced the motif of the Last Judgment in a tympanum for the first time in Italy. The sculpture of the Cathedral of Borgo S. Donnino is ascribed to him by Toschi.
