Genga, Girolamo (c.1476–1551). Born in Urbino, where he spent most of his life, his architecture was Influenced by Bramante and Raphael, notably at the Monte dei Imperiale villa, Pesaro (begun 1530), which in turn Influenced the design of the Villa Giulia, Rome. He carried out alterations and additions to the Ducal Palace, Urbino, from 1523, and designed the Churches of Santa Maria delle Grazie, Sinigaglia (from 1535), and San Giovanni Battista, Pesaro (from 1543).
