He studied painting in Bologna with Lorenzo Pasinelli. In the first decade of the 18th century, he became one of the founding members of the artists' academy in Bologna [1], known as the Accademia Clementina. Among his writings was a guide to young painters: Avvertimenti per l'incamminamento di un giovane alla pittura. He also wrote a biography about the painter and friend Giovanni Gioseffo Dal Sole[2]. Giampietro's brother, Francesco Maria Zanotti, was a philosopher in Bologna. His son Eustachio Zanotti was a noted astronomer and mathematician (1709–1782). Among his pupils was Ercole Lelli, best known for his anatomic studies in wax.
