Peter Bischoff (von Angelsheim)
April 25, 1473, Peter attended the reunion of architects and builders at Regensburg, Bavaria, Germany, of which Jost Dotzinger was the leading spirit. He appears as architect of the cathedral and city of Strasburg (Werckmeister des Mauerhoffes) in a document (Hüttenbrief) dated May 1, 1473, which bears his name and seal. His work included the supervision of the streets, pavements, bridges, and all public works of the city.

Andrea Bregno of Ostenso (Andrea Milanesi)
sculptor and architect; b. 1421; d. 1506.
In the church of S. Maria Sopra Minerva at Rome is found an obituary inscription with the name Andrea Bregno, and the date 1506. This Andrea Bregno, who is not to be confounded with Antonio Bregno surnamed Rizzo, is supposed to be the sculptor of the altar of the Cardinal Rodrigo Borgia at the church of S. Maria del Popolo (1473), the Ferrici monument at the church of S. Maria Sopra Minerva, a part of the Roverella monument at the church of S. Clemente in Rome (both after 1476), a part of the monument of Cardinal Cristoforo Rovere at S. Maria del Popolo in Rome (after 1479), and the great Piccolomini altar at the cathedral of Siena, built for the Cardinal Federigo Piccolomiui.

Cristoforo Mantegazza
sculptor; d. about 1482.
Cristoforo and Antonio Mantegazza first appear at the Certosa of Pavia, Italy, in 1473. In an inventory of that date several works in the church of that monastery are mentioned. It is not supposed that Cristoforo did much work on the façade of the Certosa, as he died just as it was commenced. Antonio worked on the façade for eight years with Omodeo.

Martino da Crapina
In 1473 the monks of Santa Chiara di Murano (Venice) commissioned Martino da Crapina, proto-maestro of their church, to build for them a campanile like that of S. Michele di Murano. The accounts of S. Chiara show frequent payments to him of considerable amounts.
