Sometimes used the pseudonym Weltbürger Sirach der Sohn.

Piattoli is best remembered for his participation in drafting the Constitution of 3 May 1791, a milestone in Polish political legislation. He was an organizer of the 1794 Kościuszko Insurrection against Russian influence, which was the last armed struggle held under the banners of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. After the Third Partition of Poland (1795), he was interned by the Austrians for several years. Freed in 1800, he worked several years with the Polish and Russian statesman, Prince Adam Jerzy Czartoryski, before retiring to Courland in western Latvia.

Leo Tolstoy based the figure of Abbé Morio in 'War and Peace' (1869) on him.
