Mascherino, Ottaviano

Mascherino, Ottaviano (1536–1606). Bolognese by birth, he settled in Rome in 1574, where he made additions to Bramante's Cortile di Belvedere (1578–85), probably built the Church of San Salvatore in Lauro (1591–1600), and restructured the Palazzo del Quirinale (1583–5). He designed the façades of Santa Maria della Scala (1592) and Santo Spirito dei Napoletani (1593), both in Rome.

Petrucci, Ottaviano dei

Ottaviano dei Petrucci (ōt´tävyä´nō dā´ē pātrōōt´chē), 1466–1539, Venetian printer. Petrucci was the inventor of printing music by movable metal type. His patent for the process was issued by the Venetian Republic in 1498, but expensive experiments with other techniques forced him to sell his rights. The music printed by his double process (first the staff, then the notes carefully laid on) is precise and fine. Examples are in the British Museum collection.
