Giovanni Rovetta was, certainly from 1614, an instrumentalist at San Marco, Venice. He became Assistant Choirmaster to Monteverdi in 1627, and succeeded him as maestro di cappella at San Marco in 1644, remaining in that post for the rest of his life. He published three volumes of concertato madrigals, in 1629, 1640 and 1645.
