(active 1709-1772 in Venice)


Italian architect and mathematician. Little biographical information is known about this architect who was active in Venice between 1709 and 1772 and received there many assignments. In 1709 he presented a model for the implementation of the façade of the church of San Stae. Between 1749 and 1772 he rebuilt the church of San Barnaba, inspired by the Santa Maria del Rosario, built by Giorgio Massari who was probably Boschetti's master.

From 1749 Boschetti designed a palace for Nicolò Venier, procurator of San Marco and his brother. The design, showing a mixture of neo-Palladianism and Baroque forms in the tradition of Baldassare Longhena, is bequeathed through engravings by Giorgio Fossati and a large wooden model, today in the Correr museum. Due to financial difficulties, only part of the ground floor was built.
