When was the Italian printer Carlo Belloni in operation?

I have a paper advertising item which, I am told, was printed by Carlo Belloni in Milan, Italy. The item appears to be from around 1920 to 1940 or perhaps earlier. For dating purposes, I would like to know when this printer was in operation. TIA

This link and this link indicate that he was operating as early as 1893, when he was an exhibitor at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago.

This is an interesting piece of information. Thanks. I did a search for "Carlo Belloni" at the first link you gave and got page 467, but only a very small part of that page. Is there a way to view the entire page so that I could see this printer's name?

That guide is on archive.org as well: http://archive.org/details/officialdirector00worl

Bingo! I found "Belloni, Carlo, Milan, Lithographic work" on p. 467. Many thanks for this link. Now, I would like to know when this printer ceased to exist.

No death date, but I did find this. #17 on page 11 indicates that Belloni established his business in 1872, and was still operating as late as 1908.
