He was born, apparently in Tuscany, from a Parmesan family. He arrived in Parma after the age of 20 years. There, he pained frescoes including a chapel in San Giovanni Evangelista in Parma and an altarpiece for the Duomo. In about 1530, he painted Madonna with Saint Sebastian and Saint Roch. He painted a Baptism of Christ for the Church of San Prospero in Reggio-Emilia. He painted a narrative fresco series on the Life of the Virgin (along with his contemporary Rondani) for the Oratorio della Concezione in Parma. Also painted Holy Family with Saint Barbara (c. 1540) . In 1541, he decorated the apse of the church of the Santa Maria della Steccata according to a design, not of Parmigianino who had once been employed in this task, but of Giulio Romano. He also painted a Adoration of the Magi, which after Anselmi's death was completed by Bernardino Gatti.
