Filippo Calendario
sculptor and architect; d. 1355.
Calendario appears to have been a shipbuilder of Murano who became capomaestro of the Doges' palace in Venice and chief architect of the Venetian Senate. He is supposed by Perkins to have made the capitals of the fašade of the palace under the influence of Andrea da Pisa. He also continued (1327) the reconstruction of the arsenal at Venice supposed to have been begun by Andrea da Pisa. In 1355 he was hung as a conspirator from the "red columns" of the Doges' palace.
