Architect Antonio da Sangallo the Younger died at Terni on 3 August 1546. Born Antonio di Antonio Cordiani in Florence in 1484, he was the nephew of architects Giuliano da Sangallo (d. 1516) and Antonio da Sangallo the Elder (d. 1534). A dominant figure in sixteenth-century Roman architecture, Antonio the Younger was personal architect to Cardinal Alessandro Farnese (later Pope Paul III, r. 1536-50), for whom he designed the Palazzo Farnese in Rome. He also was active at the site of New St. Peter’s, serving as lead architect from 1520 until his death.
