Fuga, Ferdinando

Fuga, Ferdinando (1699–1781). Florence-born architect. His early works were in Rome, where he designed the ingeniously planned Palazzo della Consulta (1732–7) at the Quirinal, the Palazzo Corsini (1736–54), the handsome, even ebullient, façade of Santa Maria Maggiore (1741–3), and the Church of Sant'Apollinare (1742–8). In 1750 he left Rome for Naples, where his huge Albergo de'Poveri (1751–81), a gigantic poor-house for 8,000 inhabitants, was one of the grandest architectural projects of C18, and one that anticipated the boldest Neo-Classicism of Boullée. In Naples he also designed the façade of the Chiesa dei Gerolomini, and the Palazzo Giordano (both c.1780).

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:
