Jacopo Sansovino was an Italian Renaissance sculptor and architect. Born in Florence in 1486, he trained as a goldsmith before becoming a sculptor. In the early 16th century he moved to Rome, where he worked on several important projects, including the tomb of Pope Julius II. In 1527, Sansovino moved to Venice, where he became the city's official architect. He designed several important buildings in Venice, including the Libreria Marciana and the church of San Francesco della Vigna. His architectural style was influenced by the classical Roman style, which he combined with the decorative elements of the Venetian Gothic style. Sansovino also created several important sculptures, including the bronze statue of St John the Baptist in the Baptistery of San Giovanni in Florence and the statue of Mars in the Doge's Palace in Venice. He died in Venice in 1570 and is remembered as one of the most important artists of the Venetian Renaissance.
