Solari, Santino (1576–1646). Italian architect from the Como area. He was one of the first to bring a mature Italian Classical style north of the Alps into the German-speaking lands. His masterpiece is the Cathedral of Sts Rupert and Virgil, Salzburg (1614–28), with its apsidal transepts clearly influenced by Palladio's Il Redentore and San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice, probably suggested by an earlier design by Scamozzi. He also designed Schloss Hellbrunn, near Salzburg (1613–15), in the early Baroque style, and the Sanctum Sanctorum, the shrine of the Gnadenbild, or picture of the Black Virgin, at the Benedictine Abbey of Einsiedeln, Switzerland (c.1617–20—destroyed and rebuilt in modified form).
