He established the Vigna Academy in Ferrara and served as the archpriest of the parish church of Cento in addition to holding the position of a professor of Sacred Scripture and Rhetoric at the University of Ferrara. Baruffaldi showed a keen interest in archaeology, history, and literature, publishing several books about the history of Ferrara alongside a collection of verse poems. The poem consists of almost two thousand verses and was written in 1712 during his exile in Veneto. Baruffaldi referred to tobacco as the drug of poets, elixir of writers.
