Lombardo (lōmbär´dō), Italian family of sculptors and architects. Emigrants from Lombardy c.1470, they were leaders in the architectural Renaissance in Venice. Pietro Lombardo, c.1435–1515, architect of numerous churches and palaces, worked on the court facades of the doge's palace from 1498. As sculptor, he is noted for the mausoleum of Doge Pietro Mocenigo in Santi Giovanni e Paolo and for other tombs, including that of Dante at Ravenna. In most of his undertakings he had as associates his sons, Antonio Lombardo, c.1458–1516?, and Tullio Lombardo, c.1455–1532. One of their greatest joint productions was the Church of Santa Maria dei Miracoli.
