Briosco, Andrea (called il Riccio), an Italian architect, was born at Padua, and flourished about 1500. His chief work was the grand Church of Santa Giustina. This work gained him a reputation. He was also a sculptor of some eminence, as there are some of his works in San Antonio, at Padua. See Spooner, Biog. Hist. of the Fine Arts, s.v.; Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
