Born in the early years of the 19th century, Gaetano Bianchini studied at the Accademia di Belli Arti, Florence, whilst at the same time serving an apprenticeship at the Galleria dei Lavori of the Opificio delle Pietre Dure. In 1846, having established a successful business, Bianchini was elected a member of the Conservas and Crafts, which brought together the best craftsmen in Florence and the wider Grand Duchy. Employing many Russian immigrants trained at the imperial factory at Peterhof, the direct competitor of the Florentine mosaicisti, Bianchini's firm participated at many of the important international exhibitions of the period, including London in 1851 and 1862, Florence in 1854 and 1861 and Paris in 1855 and 1867. Following Gaetano's death in 1866, the firm was taken over by his two sons, Telemaco and Antonio, and the business continued until 1884.
