TALENTI, Italian family of architects and sculptors

Three members of the family were active in Florence in the 14th century: Francesco Talenti and his son Simone Talenti (c. 1332-after 1383) were both involved in works on the cathedral, while Fra Jacopo Talenti, presumed to be Francesco's brother, worked at the monastery of Santa Maria Novella. Another of Francesco's sons, Piero, mentioned on 5 May 1379 in connection with the building of the Loggia dei Lanzi, is otherwise unknown.
