Milan Cathedral (Milan: 1385-1485).
Pleasure house of the grand dukes of Tuscany, about ten miles from Florence, erected for Laurence the Magnificent, from the design of Julian Giamberti, called Sangallo, a name which he derived for having constructed a monastery near Florence and outside the gate Sangallo. This artist, born in 1443 and who died in 1517, deeply studied the antique; and the knowledge he thus acquired he communicated to his nephew Antonio Sangallo, who also owed to him in great part the celebrity he afterwards enjoyed. He applied himself more particularly to the construction of fortifications, for which he was employed at Milan, at Naples, in Tuscany, and in the Papal States by order of Julius II.
