On the facade of the church of the Certosa, Pavia, Lombardy, Italy

In 1473, the brothers Cristoforo (d. 1480) and Antonio (d. 1495) Mantegazza contracted to construct the facade of the Certosa of Pavia. However, in 1474, a half share in this facade was allotted to Amadeo, who seems to have assumed direction of the work from this time on.
