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).
