Guarino Guarini

1624 - 1683

Italian architect and theorist.

Together with Francesco Borromini, Guarini is considered the best exponent of the anti-classical, anti-Vitruvian trend prominent in Italian architecture after Michelangelo but increasingly less popular from the late 17th century. His architectural designs are noted for their subtlety and daring and complex domes but were ignored in Italy outside Piedmont. Illustrations published in 1686, however, and again in Guarini's treatise "Architettura civile" (1737) were highly influential on the development of south German and Austrian late Baroque and Rococo architecture.
