WHAT WAS SALUCCI'S LIFE LIKE?
Giovanni Salucci began studying architecture in Florence at the Accademia di Belle Arti in 1783, after cutting short his business education, in which he was unhappy. His received his first jobs while on an educational trip to Rome and Venetia. Between 1817 and 1839, Salucci worked as the royal Württemberg court architect. In 1840, he returned to his native Florence. He died there, five years later, destitute, and is interred at the cloister at the Convent of San Marco.
