Vaccaro, Domenico Antonio

Vaccaro, Domenico Antonio (1678–1745). Neapolitan architect. His cleverly planned churches, combining octagonal and rectangular volumes, include the Monastery Church of the Concezione at Montecalvario (1718–24) and the choir and transepts of Santa Maria delle Grazie, Calvizzano, Naples (c.1743). In the latter the junctions between the drum and the cupola are blurred by much frothy stucco. His loveliest creation is the majolica Chiostro (cloister) della Clarisse, at Santa Chiara, Naples (1739–42), in which are vine-clad pergolas on octagonal riggiole (colourful majolica tiles)-clad piers linked by seats (also majolica-faced). He also designed the Palazzo Tarsia, Naples (1732–9), possibly influenced by Hildebrandt's design for the Belvedere, Vienna.

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.
