I recently discovered this spectacular facade while searching for hi-res images of some of Michelangelo’s work. It’s a genuinely great mannerist work by a little known architect, Simone Moschino, a disciple of other mannerists such as Buontalenti, Ammanati, and through them, Michelangelo. I’ve searched the web and compiled a collection of images of the interior and exterior. Here is also a link to a flickr page I found with a collection of interior and exterior images for both San Giovanni Evangelist and other churches in Parma. Enjoy!
