He was active throughout Italy in the 1890s and first decade of the 1900s. In 1890 he appeard at the Teatro Alfieri as Fernando in ‘’Favorita’’. Then he sang in Teramo, Asti and Naples. In 1896 he made guest appearances in Warsaw singing at the Imperail Theatre. Then Stampanoni sang in Buenos Aires (1897) and Odessa (1899). In 1902 he went to Amsterdam and performed at the  Paleis Voor Volksvlijt. Here he appeared as Duca in ‘’Rigoletto’’. Probably he retired from the stage in 1908. His recordings, that he made for APGA are extremely rare.

  1. De Bernal Rezky is as solid and dependable as ever but the tenor is very bad indeed.
