In the 1896-1897 seasons he was in Parma, where at the Teatro Regio he sang in ‘’Andrea Chenier’’, ‘’Cavalleria Rusticana’’ and ‘’Pagliacci’’. Then he traveled to Amsterdam and in the 1898-99 seasons appeared at the Paleis Voor Volksvlijt in ‘’Cavalleria Rusticana’’ and ‘’Carmen’’. In 1899 he also made guest appearance in Barcelona. There at the Teatro Liceo he appeared in ‘’Boheme’’. Guest appearances followed in Santiago del Cile (1901), Lisbon (1908), Alessandria (1917) and Madrid (1924). Early he started to appear also as comprimario (1903) and retired from the stage in 1926.
