Giorgio Massari

Giorgio Massari (1687–1766) was one of the most important Venetian architects of his time. He combined his classical style with Palladian and baroque elements. Massari constructed both civil and religious buildings.

Some of his works which you can see in Venice are The Grassi Palace and Ca’ Rezzonico (which was started earlier but finished by Massari). The facade of the Academy of Fine Arts is also part of his work. With regards to churches in Venice, he built the Chiesa dei Gesuiti, Chiesa di San Marcuola and Chiesa della Pietà.
