From Verona, as most of Palladio's collaborators, he was born around 1530 and finishes
his pictorial apprenticeship in Giovanni Francesco Caroto's workshop. Among 1550 and 1560
he realizes - in collaboration with Bernardino India - the decoration of Thiene Palace in
Vicenza and of villa Pojana in Pojana. Already in these juvenile operas the artist takes
itself off from the soft and delicate language of India, being inspired rather by Giulio
Romano and realizing figures strongly expressive and realistic.
He works afterward in some churches and palaces in Verona. The last opera of Canera is L'oltraggio
al Faraone, dated 1584, that, in absence of other comparisons, consents us to
collocate the artist death generically after this year.
