Originally from Verona, Marc'Antonio Ingegneri spent the most significant period of his career and the last 25-30 years of his life in Cremona.  He claimed to have been a pupil of Cipriano de Rore, and he had strong, if informal, links with the court of the Farnese at Parma.  He is principally remembered as the teacher of Claudio Monteverdi.
