Mascherino, Ottaviano

Mascherino, Ottaviano (1536–1606). Bolognese by birth, he settled in Rome in 1574, where he made additions to Bramante's Cortile di Belvedere (1578–85), probably built the Church of San Salvatore in Lauro (1591–1600), and restructured the Palazzo del Quirinale (1583–5). He designed the façades of Santa Maria della Scala (1592) and Santo Spirito dei Napoletani (1593), both in Rome.

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.

Petrucci, Ottaviano dei

Ottaviano dei Petrucci (ōt´tävyä´nō dā´ē pātrōōt´chē), 1466–1539, Venetian printer. Petrucci was the inventor of printing music by movable metal type. His patent for the process was issued by the Venetian Republic in 1498, but expensive experiments with other techniques forced him to sell his rights. The music printed by his double process (first the staff, then the notes carefully laid on) is precise and fine. Examples are in the British Museum collection.
