Notes:
Maderno demonstrated his expertise and originality in palace design. The Palazzo Mattei di Giove, Rome, built in three stages between 1598 and 1617, is set on a corner site and has two three-storey façades with regularly spaced windows and quoins at the angles, placing the building firmly within the prevailing Roman palace type; yet its fine brickwork (instead of the usual stucco) and carefully adjusted proportions set it apart from such predecessors as Domenico Fontana's Palazzo del Laterano and show it to be a worthy successor of Antonio da Sangallo (ii)'s Palazzo Farnese.
