Born in Milan, Pietro Paulo Borrono won a reputation as a composer and lutenist, perhaps serving at the court of François I in the early 1530s. From about 1550 he was in the service of Ferrante Gonzaga, Governor of Milan, acting also as an envoy. His lute compositions were published in his lifetime in Venice, the Netherlands and Germany.
