Rossi, Domenico Egidio

Rossi, Domenico Egidio (fl. 1689–1708). Italian architect. He appears to have played an important role in the development of Baroque architecture in Central Europe. He probably designed the Palais Caprara-Geymüller in Wallnerstrasse, Vienna (1687–8), and energetically supervised the works at Hradčany Castle, Prague, in the 1690s. He made designs (c.1690) for the Gartenpalais Liechtenstein, some of which survive, and for the Czernin gardens at Leopoldstadt (1696—destroyed), both in Vienna. Other designs included the vast Schloss Rastatt (1698–1707—for the Margrave Ludwig (reigned 1677–1707) ), the palace at Durlach (from 1698—for Margrave Friedrich V of Baden-Durlach (reigned 1677–1709), and other works in Baden. He seems to have sailed close to the wind, had to flee Prague after a brawl in 1693, and a warrant was issued for his arrest in 1709 for defects at Schloss Rastatt.

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:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content.

  • 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.
