Genga, Girolamo an Italian painter and eminent architect, was born at Urbino in 1476, and studied successively under Luca Signorelli and Pietro Perugino. Most of his works have perished, but mention is made of some historical subjects in the Petrucci palace at Siena: The Resurrection and The Assumption. As an architect he gained considerable eminence, and was more employed in this capacity than as a painter. At Pesaro he restored the court of the palace, built the Church of San Gio. Battista, and erected the facade of the cathedral. He died in 1551. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v,; Spooner, Biog. Hist. of the Fine Arts, s.v.
