Piermarini, Giuseppe

Piermarini, Giuseppe (1734–1808). Italian architect who worked for Vanvitelli from c.1765, and was in Milan from 1769. Then he became Architect to the Archducal Court, and not only designed many buildings but was the arbiter of all matters relating to the work of other architects. He built the enormous Palazzo Belgioioso (1772–81), followed by other houses, including the Palazzo Greppi (1772–8), the Palazzo Moriggia (1770s), and the Casa Casnedi (c.1776), all in Milan. He designed the Palazzo Ducale (from 1773—with interior decorations by Giocondo Albertolli (1742–1839)), and the Villa Ducale, Monza (1776–80—again collaborating with Albertolli). He was responsible for several theatres including the Teatro alla Scala, Milan (1776–9), the Teatro Canobbiana, Milan (1777–80), and others at Novara (1777), Monza (1778), Mantua (1782–3), Crema (1783–5—destroyed), and Matelica (1803–12), all in a refined Neo-Classical style. His work was widely imitated.

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.
