She was a native of Lovere, Lombardy. She met Bartolomea when she was 40 years old. Together, they founded the order because of their concern over the ignorance and neglect of the people of their area which they saw. Vincenza would continue with the order several years after Bartholomea died. Vincenza herself died in 1847.
