Italian painter. He arrived in Naples about 1634, having almost certainly trained in Rome. He belonged to the numerous followers of Pieter van Laer,
a Dutch painter working in Rome. This group of painter was known as the Bamboccianti after the nickname of van Laer.
Codazzi was a specialist in the realistic architectural veduta , and his interest in this theme may have been stimulated in Rome by the quadratura frescoes
of Agostino Tassi
and by the urban views of Claude Lorrain
and Herman van Swanevelt.
His son Niccolo (1642-1693) was also an architectural painter.
