Italian artist Andrea Fantoni died in Rovetta on 25 July 1734. Trained in his father’s workshop, Andrea worked as a sculptor, furniture-maker, and architect. He was a virtuoso wood-carver and he made elaborate furnishings for churches and private homes in Bergamo, Parma, and other northern Italian locales. The Fantoni workshop also produced works in marble and ivory.
