Campionesi. C19 term for a group of sculptors and architects active in Lombardy from the mid-C12 to the late C14: the name derives from Campione da Lugano, their place of origin. The Rood-screen (late-C12) in Modena Cathedral is attributed to Anselmo di Campione; the altar, crypt capitals, main façade (including the circular window), and the Porta Regia on the south flank of the nave (1209–31— which has a porch incorporating one hexagonal and one twisted column) to his followers, including his son, Ottavio; and the completion of the Ghirlandina campanile (1319) and nave pulpit to Enrico. Giovanni da Campione designed the Baptistery at Santa Maria Maggiore, Bergamo (1340), and the south porch of the church (1351). Bonino da Campione (fl. 1357–97) signed the extraordinary tomb of Cansignorio della Scala (d. 1375) at Santa Maria Antica, Verona, and Matteo da Campione (d. 1396) carried out major works at Monza and Milan Cathedrals.

Citation styles 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, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use 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:
