STAZIO, Abbondio
(b. 1663, Massagno, d. 1757, Venezia)

Entrance hall

Palazzo Albrizzi, Venice

The picture shows the 'portego' of the Palazzo Albrizzi, decorated with stuccoes by Abbondio Stazio and his pupil Carpoforo Mazzetti, known as Tencalla. The high relief stucco decoration in lively colours extends over large area, becoming the true protagonist of the space.
