GASPARI, Antonio
(b. ca. 1660, Veneto, d. after 1730, Castelguglielmo)


Italian architect and architectural painter, active in both Venice and the terrafirma of the Veneto. He was a pupil of Baldassare Longhena, and upon his master's death in 1682, he completed some of his projects, including Longhena's most famous work, the church of Santa Maria della Salute, and the Ca' Pesaro. Although he was more famous for restoration and modernisation work rather than new buildings, he designed the large Baroque building Ca' Zenobio in Venice.

One of his sons, Giovanni Paolo Gaspari (1712-1775), was a painter active mainly in Germany.
