He worked at the National Library of Sweden as a Janitor and his language skills made him useful at the department for foreign books. He committed suicide according to this newspaper.

"Kaffe orsak till sjelfmord. Under grubbleri, förorsakadt af för mycket kaffedrickande, som det tros, afhände sig för några dagar sedan den äldste af kongl. bibliotekets vaktmästare Pisani lifvet. Han greps af den inbillningen att kongl. biblioteket frånröfvats flere sina dyrbaraste sällsyntheter och att han misstänktes vara gerningsmannen. Hans mångåriga bokerfarenhet i förening med hans språkkännedom gjorde att han användes vid utländska afdelningen. Han var till börden italienare." [Source: Sundsvalls Tidning 1888-NOV-03]

In the newspaper article above Pisani is callad an Italian, but Carl Andreas (Anders) Pisani was born in Bergen, Norway. He supposedly came of Italian stock. He was married and had children. [Source: Rotemansarkivet, Stockholm]
