- Giovanni da Nola
He moved to Naples where he trained under Aniello del Fiore and Benedetto da Maiano. In his youth, he traveled to Rome where he was influenced by Michelangelo, and then returned to Naples where he spent the rest of his career as sculptor and architect.
As an architect he built a number of palaces in Naples, including the Palazzo Giusso, now the home of the Naples Eastern University.
Many of the statues he created in Naples were removed to Spain by the viceroys then in charge of the Kingdom of Naples on behalf of the Spanish crown. When the viceroy Ramón de Cardona died in Naples in 1522, da Nola built his tomb in Naples, but it was then transported piece by piece to Bellpuig where da Cardona was buried. It remains one of the main examples of Italian renaissance art in Catalonia.
Most of his works that remain in Naples are in the churches of the city. They include:
- the tomb of Francesco Carafa in San Domenico Maggiore
- an altar in San Lorenzo Maggiore
- statues of saints in San Giovanni a Carbonara
- tombs of three youths of the Severino family in the church of Santi Severino e Sossio
- an altar in Sant'Anna dei Lombardi
His pupils included Ferdinando Manlio and Cola dell'Amatrice.
