Ciuli is mentioned by Paul Marmottan (Les arts en Toscane sous Napoléon. La Princesse Elisa, Paris, 1901, p. 114) as one of the most celebrated Roman mosaicists during the period of the French occupation. Few mosaics by Ciuli have been recorded but a signed mosaic of a head of Bacchus on a snuff-box by Adrien-Jean-Maximilien Vachette is in the Gilbert Collection (J. Hanisee Gabriel, The Gilbert Collection. Micromosaics, London, 2000, illustrated in colour, p. 100, no. 44) and another signed example of his work, the bust of Jupiter, on a snuff-box, is in the Museo Napoleonico, Rome.
