Allio, Matteo

Allio, Matteo an Italian sculptor, lived in the 17th century. He executed some works in the Church of Sant' Antonio at Padua in 1653, and some very elegant pilasters, which are highly praised by Cicognara. In the chapel of the Dominican Church at Padua there is a statue of San Lorenzo Giustiniano by Matteo, which, being inferior to one of Sant' Antonio by Brunelli, placed by the side of it in 1667, is said to have caused the artist's death, owing to the serious way in which he took the matter to heart.
