Falconetto, Giovanni Maria

Falconetto, Giovanni Maria (1468–1535). Verona-born architect and painter. His work suggests the Roman Classicism of Bramante and Raphael, and he was an important practitioner of the style in Northern Italy. His garden-houses, the Loggia Cornaro and Odeon (1524), now part of the Palazzo Giustiniani, Padua, pre-date designs by Palladio and Sansovino, yet have architectural characteristics of the later masters' works. He may have been the first to design a formal country villa, with his Villa dei Vescovi, Luvigliano, near Padua (c.1529–35), which has a sophisticated arched loggia of remarkable architectural quality. He designed the handsome town-gates (Porta di San Giovanni (1528) and Porta di Savonarola (1530))) and worked on the Cappella del Santo (from 1533) in the Church of Sant'Antonio, all in Padua.

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.
