Pietro Bossi

Scagliola and stucco worker, active in Dublin in the last quarter of the eighteenth century. Pietro Bossi, who may have been a member of a family of stucco workers named Bossi in the neighbourhood of Como, Northern Italy, had arrived in Dublin by 1784. Best known for his inlaid marble mantelpieces, in 1796 he submitted an estimate to the second Earl of Aldborough for plastering and stucco work for Aldborough House, Dublin. He is also said to have made several mantelpieces for the house, which were removed by ROBERT COCHRANE on behalf of the Commissioners of Public Works in 1898.

The date and place of Pietro Bossi’s death is not known. He may have married in Ireland; the christening of Maria Teresa Bossi, daughter of Peter and Sarah Bossi of Fleet Street, Dublin, on 5 July 1795 is recorded in the registers of St Marks’ Church of Ireland church.
Address: 22 Fleet Street, 1785-1786; then 38 Fleet Street, 1787-1798.
