Diogenio Bigaglia (1678–1745), a Venetian amateur musician born just a week after Vivaldi, was perhaps the contemporary composer closest to him in temperament and working methods. Like Vivaldi, he was an ordained priest, but unlike "Il Prete rosso" he lived in an enclosed community, that of the Benedictine monastery on the Venetian island of San Giorgio Maggiore.
