In Piacenza Panini probably worked with the architectural painters F Bibiena and G Natali and was influenced by the landscape painter Ghisolfi. After a move to Rome in 1711 he attended the drawing academy of the figure painter Benedetto Luti until c. 1718.



After a period of concentrating mainly on architecture, fresco painting and designing festivities, Panini turned to the vedute and capricci for which he became famous. In Rome he was influenced by Andrew Locatelli’s landscapes and Sebastiano Conca’s figures. He married the sister-in-law of Nicolas Vleughels, director of the French Academy in Rome, became a teacher of perspective at the Academy and was much patronised by the French community in the city. His work was an influence on Joseph Vernet and Hubert Robert.
