Andrea Calamech (1524-1589)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[automatically translated] Andrea Calamech is commemorated by Vasari as "created and academic" by Bartolomeo Ammannati, and mentioned more in the virtue and the long working relationship that bound the two masters of the Medici court, that a thorough and lasting knowledge of the sculptor and architect from Carrara , the activity of which, in fact, does not seem to be well-informed: the second edition of the Lives gives him for dead in the distant Messina, right in the moment when the Andrea artistic career in the city of the strait, however, progressed favorably, to grow with great success until the late eighties of the century, as a trusted architect of the municipality, and vice-regal authority of the Jesuit order.
