Jacopo (Giacomo, Jacopo) Vighi was a painter born, around 1510, in Argenta, near Ferrara. We know only three paintings certainly ascribable to him and are all portrait, in fact he made portraits first at the Este Court in Ferrara, especially with Ercole II, then, starting from 1561 in Turin, at the Savoye Court. After the Duke Emanuele Filiberto called Vighi to his court, he was addressed toward the most important courts in Italy and in Europe (Franch, Spanish, Augsburg) where he refined his style perfectly according to the taste of international official portraiture. Thanks to new documents, it is now possible to delineate more precisely some phases of his biography and to clarify the system of models he chose to accomplish the diplomatic needs and the taste of the most important rulers of the XVI Century.
