The medalist is known only from two signed medals of Duke Ercole I of Ferrara, both dated 1472. The medalist may be identical with the sculptor in terra cotta named Ludovicus de Mutina, who made majolica tiles for the Palazzo Schifanoia in Ferrara in 1470. A "Ludovico de Coradino, bochalaro de Modena" (potter from Modena) is mentioned in a document of 1478 as receiving payment for making glazed terracotta conduits for the fountain in the main square of Ferrara.
