    Description:

    Lantern slide labeled Petrograd. In 1787-1792 Quarenghi designed and built a wing along the Winter Canal with the Raphael Loggias to replicate the loggia in the Apostolic Palace in Rome designed by Donato Bramante and frescoed by Raphael. The loggias in Saint Petersburg were adorned with copies of Vatican frescoes painted by Cristopher Unterberger and his workshop in the 1780s.

    In the reign of Catherine II a grand palace ensemble was created that served as an official state residence, a stor…

    Description:

    About 1530 Falconetto was commissioned by the Consiglio of the city of Padua to reshape the upper floor of the Monte di Pietà. In the same year he was put in charge of work on the Loggia del Consiglio, which had been planned since 1496 and was built to a design by Annibale Magi da Bassano (died 1504). [It was called the Loggia della Gran Guardia when it housed a military command during the Austrian rule.]

    Description:

    In 1531-1532 the main entrance to the Palazzo del Capitanio, the seat of the Venetian governor on the Piazza dei Signori, Padua, was rebuilt to a design by Falconetto. It is an enlarged version of the central bay of the Loggia Cornaro, with the addition of paired Tuscan semi-columns. Instead of an antique frieze the architrave bears the inscription of the Doge of Venice, Andrea Gritti, and also the insignia of the two administrators Badoer and Moro, who represented Venice in Padua from 1531 t…

    Description:

    [Santissima Annunziata is a Roman Catholic minor basilica in Florence and the mother church of the Servite order.] The most extraordinary and fascinating of Michelozzo’s architectural projects was the tribune of SS Annunziata, Florence. Its unprecedented circular plan with nine radiating chapels served as a presbytery, choir and funerary chapel. From the start of work (1444) the building was criticized by Brunelleschi and other architects, who suggested it was an unsuitable attachment to …

    Description:

    The Renaissance arcaded loggia was built in 1502; decorated by a ceramic glaze frieze executed from 1525 by Santi Buglioni with tondos by Giovanni della Robbia.

    The name derives from the old custom of placing alms in a hollow tree trunk. In 1345 there were ongoing works for a new cloister, oratory and domus (residence for women). It became the main city’s hospital after the donations received in the wake of the Black Death of 1348. The hospital administrators commissioned the Florentine …

    Description:

    An open portico built at the expense of Pope Pius II (Aeneas Silvius Piccolomini) which faces the Piazza San Martino. The small, three-bay loggia is exceptional for its lack of sculptural detail. Three elegant travertine arches are supported by columns with Corinthian capitals. Across the top is a plain entablature with the inscription PIUS II PONT MAX GENTILIBUS SUI PICCOLOMINEIS.

    Description:

    The architect of the loggia is Sano di Matteo, built between 1417 and 1428 under his direction, then from 1428 to 1444 by Pietro del Minella in a transitional style between Gothic and Renaissance. Federighi was commissioned to add three sculptures of saints in 1457 (three of the four ancient town’s patron saints, San Savino, Sant'Ansano and San Vittore). A marble bench (ca. 1459-1464; in situ) for the Loggia, ornamented with reliefs of ancient Roman heroes on the front and the nursing…

    Description:

    Pope Julius II established the Belvedere sculpture garden behind the Vatican Palace. The Museo Pio Clementino was constructed by Michelangelo Simonetti, to take the Belvedere sculptures into a new display and to make room for the frantic new collecting of antiquities on which the papacy embarked, which soon required the additional accommodation of the Galleria dei Candelabri. Once the papacy was committed to centralized conservation, the collections rapidly expanded in the form of different m…

    Description:

    It was founded in 1346, as the church of the Servite Community of the Blessed Virgin Mary and was designed by Padre Andrea da Faenza (died 1396). The facade is unfinished with the portico and arcade added in the 15th century. The piazza in front of the basilica was quite small and a wide arcade was able to be built around it, enclosing the entire square. Bologna was noted for the 34 km of arcaded streets at the time. It appears to have been modeled on the arcade built by Brunelleschi at the H…
