BONANNO DA PISA
(active late 12th century)

Biography

He made the bronze doors of Pisa Cathedral in 1179 but they were destroyed in 1595. The side door of the Cathedral (Porta di S. Ranieri) is attributed to him, as it is identical in style with the bronze doors of Monreale Cathedral, signed by him and dated 1185 (New Style). The other bronze doors at Monreale are by Barisanus.
