  Famous people of Rome

Belonging to a dynasty of architects from Viggiù, in Lombardy, is considered one of the most original architects of the Roman Baroque, able to stand the comparison with the great Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Francesco Borromini and Pietro da Cortona. His first certain work is the singular façade of Sant'Antonio dei Portughesi in Rome (about 1629), adorned by a great abundance of coats of arms and statues reminiscent of an ephemeral apparatus, whose tympanum houses a gigantic coat of arms of the dynasty of Braganza.
