Sangallo the Younger, Antonio da


Sangallo the Younger, Antonio da
(1485-1546)
   Italian architect, the nephew of Giuliano da Sangallo and Antonio da Sangallo the Elder. In c. 1503, Antonio went to Rome where he first worked with Donato Bramante at St. Peter's, acting as his assistant and draughtsman. In c. 1539, he was put in charge of the basilica's construction. This proved to be a major debacle as the wooden model he produced was not well received by his contemporaries. One of his harshest critics was none other than Michelangelo, who in 1564 completed the building. Antonio's most notable work is the Palazzo Farnese in Rome (c. 1513—1546), commissioned by Cardinal Alessandro Farnese to serve as his principal residence. In 1534, the cardinal ascended the papal throne as Paul III and asked Antonio to increase the size of the original design to reflect his new position of power. Much to Antonio's mortification, the pope also announced a competition for the palace's cornice. Michelangelo won and, after Antonio died, he completed this building as well.
