Nothing is known of the background of Italian quack Bartholomew Dominicetti. He was a successful medical practitioner with a shrewd sense of self-promotion. In 1765 he opened his medicinal baths at no. 6 Cheyne Walk. People looking for a quick cure flocked to his practice. He was a minor celebrity who entered into fashionable society. He and his wife attended the celebrated masquerade, given by the King of Denmark, at the Opera House on 10 October 1768. He went bankrupt in 1782 and nothing else is known about him.
