(b. 1412, Borgo a Buggiano, Pistoia, d. 1461, Firenze)

Funerary Monument to Filippo Brunelleschi

Duomo, Florence

In the 1440s, Buggiano carved other works in marble for the cathedral, including a tabernacle of Corpus Christi (1443), eventually placed in the lateral tribune on the north side; the fluted columns and cornice of the altar of the SS Sacramento (1446), based on a design by Michelozzo di Bartolommeo and located in the same tribune; and the funerary monument to Filippo Brunelleschi, consisting of a tondo containing his bust (1447–48). The features of the bust repeat those of the plaster death mask, which may have been made by Buggiano.
