Cronaca, Simone del Pollaiuolo called Il (1457–1508). Florentine architect. He worked with Giuliano da Sangallo on the octagonal sacristy of Santo Spirito, and with Benedetto da Maiano on the Palazzo Strozzi, where he was responsible for the grand cornicione (c.1489–1504). He completed the monastery-church of San Salvatore (or San Francesco) al Monte in 1504, the chaste proportions of which were admired by Michelangelo. Cronaca has been credited with the design of the Palazzo Guadagni (1504–6).
