Sabatelli was born in Florence and trained for five years in Rome, where he came under the influence of the French Academicians, in particular David and his pupil Fabre, but also others such as François-Guillaume Ménageot. By 1808 his reputation was sufficiently high for him to be appointed to the Academy of Brera in Milan, a post which he maintained for forty years. Increasingly famous for his numerous paintings and frescoes executed on a grand scale, he returned to Florence in 1819-20, where he painted his most celebrated work, the vast tondo of the Council of the Gods, in the vault of the Sala dell'Lliade in the Palazzo Pitti.
