Cagnola, Marchese Luigi

Cagnola, Marchese Luigi (1762–1833). Italian Neo-Classical architect, whose work influenced later generations of Italian architects. In Milan he built the Ionic Porta Ticinese (1801–14) and Arco del Sempione or della Pace (1806–38), the latter a beautifully proportioned and detailed triumphal arch based on Roman precedents. His own house, the Villa Cagnola at Inverigo (c.1813–33), is a severe Neo-Classical work with a low domed circular entrance-hall and ranges of Ionic columns outside. His Pantheon-like Church of San Lorenzo (known as La Rotonda) at Ghisalba (1822–33) is a pure example of the Antique form. Although he did not design the campanile at Ghisalba, he was responsible for the free-standing five-stage tower at Urgnano (1824–9) with caryatides supporting the domed top. See moosbrugger.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
