and palaces built by them from the 15th to the 18th century. Click on the building name for further information.

Bartolomeo Bon

Bartolomeo Buon (or Bon) worked on the Ca'd'Oro as a scholar of his father, the stonemason Giovanni Bon, resident in the venetian parish of San Felice. Bartolomeo's first recorded work is the sculptured cistern wellhead of said palace. He was probably born before 1410 and died between 1464 and 1467. The so-called Porta della Carta, a monumental gate between the Doge's Palace and St. Mark's church, is also a work of Giovanni and Bartolomeo Bon. Bartolomeo was responsible for the church portals of Santi Giovanni e Paolo and the Madonna dell'Orto. The Ca'del Duca, a monumental palace built for Andrea Corner from 1457 on, was not finished.


Mauro Codussi (Coducci)

Bergamo, around 1440 - Venice, 1504
Codussi erected the first Renaissance church in Venice, San Michele in Isola, and three important palaces, although the recent scholarship puts Codussi's authorship of Ca'Corner Spinelli into perspective.
