Abstract

Francesco Sambonifacio, born into a prominent family of Verona, cultivated prestigious relationships with the urban aristocracy, the Venetian patriciate, and the Gonzaga family. This privileged condition favoured an acute awareness of his status and was the cause of at least three commissions. Sambonifacio had a personal medal struck by Giulio della Torre, a devotional portrait painted by Francesco Torbido and a funerary monument in Santa Maria della Scala, whose project is likely attributed to Sanmicheli.
