Antonio da Sangallo the Younger
Antonio da Sangallo the Younger (actually Antonio di Bartolomeo Cordini , born April 12, 1484 in Florence , † August 3, 1546 in Terni ) was an Italian architect and fortress builder of the Renaissance .
Sangallo came from a famous family of architects and was the nephew of Antonio da Sangallo the Elder and Giuliano da Sangallo . In 1503 he followed Giuliano da Sangallo to Rome, where he later enjoyed the favor of various popes . He was initially an employee of Raffael and Donato Bramante , who employed him in the execution of the dome pillars of St. Peter in Rome.
From 1520 he worked as a freelance architect and after the death of Raphael became his successor as builder at St. Peter. From 1539 he worked there as a leading architect. He was one of the most respected and busiest architects in Rome.
Sangallos buildings presented themselves in the style of the High Renaissance , but showed the first characteristics of the early Baroque . His plans for the Palazzo Farnese conceived this as the first city palace with a uniaxial orientation. The design of its inner courtyard is one of the most important achievements of Italian Renaissance architecture.
