Floriano Ambrosini

Architect and Engineer

Chapel of St Dominic in San Domenico

Bologna native Floriano Ambrosini (1557-1621) like many architects of his time, wore many hats. He designed the locks on the Navile Canal, as well as several key Baroque buildings around the city.

Works include the chapel of St Dominic in San Domenico, the Oratory of Santa Maria della Vita and the Palazzo Magnani.
