Pennone, Rocco

Pennone, Rocco a distinguished Lombard architect, flourished at Genoa in the 16th century. Milizia does not mention his instructor, but he warmly commends Pennone's abilities, as evinced in the enlargement of the government palace at Genoa, particularly in the arrangement of a grand portico, flanked by two courts, which, although differing in size, satisfy the eye by their perfect symmetry. These courts are surrounded by two orders of galleries, the first supported by Doric and the second by Ionic columns. Among the other works of Pennone is a part of the church of St. Sacramento, which he completed after the designs of Galeazzo Alessi.
