Gigliardi, or Gilardi, or Giliardi, or Zhilyardi, Domenico (1788–1845). Italian-born architect, he settled in Moscow with his father, Giacomo. They built the Widows' House (1809–18— with its impressive octastyle portico of unfluted Greek Doric columns) and the Guardianship Council Building (1823–6—with its portico of Ionic columns and its vaulted staircase-hall with two tiers of unfluted columns). Probably his finest work is the Lunin House (1818–23), but his largest commission was the reconstruction (1817–19) of Kazakov's Moscow University, where he replaced the Ionic Order on the entrance-portico with a tougher Greek Doric Order, and remodelled the side-pavilions to render them more severe. He designed the Khruschev (1814) and Lopukhin (1817–22) Houses, both essentially Palladian, but with Empire enrichments. His main importance lies in the bold Neo-Classicism he promoted, and in his influence on Russian architecture that, to some extent, paralleled that of Gilly in Prussia. He altered Kazakov's Music Pavilion of the Equerry on the Kuzminki Estate (1819), and completed Kazakov's and Quarenghi's Suburban Palace, begun in 1788, in the 1820s.

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:
