Bernardino India

Born in Verona in 1528, he collaborated with Sanmicheli (Canossa palace and Pellegrini chapel in S. Bernardino of Verona) and with Palladio (villa Pojana and Thiene Palace in Vicenza). Sensitive to the influences of the Emilia region's Mannerism, especially of Parmigianino, he mostly worked in Verona area, also realizing, in '70 and '80 years, a conspicuous series of delicate altar-pieces. In one of these,Il martirio di Santa Degnamerita, an unknown hand affixed the inscription "Bernardinus India postremo vitae anno MDXC faciebat", that was the year of his death.
