SCALFAROTTO, Giovanni Antonio
(b. ca. 1695, Venezia, d. 1764, Venezia)
Italian architect, active in Venice. He is best known for the design of the Neo-classical church of San Simone Piccolo, Venice (1718-38), a domed rotunda with a portico fronted by four Corinthian columns set between square corner-columns. He had an eclectic style. He designed the façade of the church of San Rocco, and the bell tower of the church San Bartolomeo (1747-52).
Scalfarotto taught architectural drawing to the engraver Giovanni Battista Piranesi.
