Giuseppe Sardi

Designer of church facades

Santa Maria del Giglio

Son of the Swiss Italian architect-sculptor Antonio Sardi, Giuseppe Sardi (1620–99) was born in Venice (confusingly there was another better known Baroque architect of the same name, mostly active in Rome).

The Venetian Sardi is mainly known for his often lavish Baroque church façades: Santa Maria dei Carmini, San Lazzaro dei Mendicanti, the Scalzi and Santa Maria del Giglio.
