Mazzolari learned to paint on his own, as a self-taught person, entering the Lombard school with his own characteristics. He worked mainly in Milan, his first known painting is a painting with peonies exhibited in Brera in 1900.

He painted above all landscapes, with a predilection for the lakes of Como and for the Aosta valley, but he also dealt with the theme of the figure, often inserted in countryside scenes.

Today his paintings are housed in the Martinengo gallery in Brescia "Primavera" and in the gallery of Modern Art in Milan "L’anello".

As a fresco painter he carried out works in Lombard churches, including those of Ripalta Cremasca and Intra.
