Genoese sculptor Filippo Parodi died on this day in 1702. In addition to his hometown, Parodi spent over a decade in Rome, and also worked in Venice and Padua. His work shows knowledge of Bernini and Puget, and his style was carried on by several students, including Pietro Roncaioli and Giacomo Antonio Ponsonelli.
