Although clearly intimated connected with the Ferrarese court, Girolamo Belli seems never to have held a recognised position within the Ducal musical household; rather, his connections appear to have been forged through his apprenticeship with Luzzasco Luzzaschi.  He also seems to have received particular favour from the Duchess, Margherita Gonzaga d'Este.
