4) attributed to Bernardo Rossellino or Antonio Rossellino, both in the museum's permanent collection.
Bernardo Rossellino (20) (Settignano: 1409-Florencia: 1464) fue ese profesional que ideaba y dirigia las obras, de modo lucido y con total solvencia como para asumir y resolver, como un consumado y excelente architetto-artigiano, los autenticos retos que, digamos "sobre la marcha", Pio II le fue imponiendo, como luego senalare.
Se pone enfasis en que Pio II aveva realizzato un complesso urbanistico mirabile, en suo borgo natio: Pienza, una cittadina, quasi esattamente a meta strada tra Siena e Perugia, che, dopo quel suo breve attimo di gloria nel Quattrocento, non e quasi affatto cambiata, cuya caracteristica principal e di gran lunga piu importante e che il centro della citta fu consapevolmente progettato come unita singola basata sulla cattedrale, citando a Bernardo Rossellino, il quale aveva lavorato per l'Alberti a palazzo Rucellai; es notoria la validez y agudeza de los juicios resenados por este estudioso (24).
El papel de Bernardo Rossellino es claro y documentado, aportando su "experiencia", "mano" y pericia in situ, como ha quedado resenado, realizando trazas parciales y bajo su responsabilidad estuvo la direccion de las obras, lo cual no fue una tarea facil, segun se ira referenciando, y esto al margen del aludido "dispararse" de los costes previstos; por otro lado, como ya ha quedado dicho y sobre ello insistiremos, fue Rossellino el interprete privilegiado de Alberti, y lo habia sido ya en proyectos anteriores a Pienza.
A tenor de todo lo expuesto, puede conjeturarse razonablemente que Pio II debio contar con Alberti como asesor para la conformacion de Pienza y atender a sus consejos --siempre que no chocaran con su firme y decidida voluntad--y que conocia el De re manuscrito; asimismo seria licito pensar que fuera el propio Battista quien, como ejecutor idoneo del proyecto, recomendara a Bernardo Rossellino.
Pius's aim, carried out by his architect Bernardo Rossellino, was to transform the medieval village into a noble, city-state.
32) At the same church, Fra Sebastiano Benintendi commissioned Bernardo Rossellino and his workshop to make a sculpted wall tomb for his grandmother, the Blessed Villana delle Botti (d.

2) These two choices, either making Bruni a civic-humanist ideologue, clutching his Historiae Florentini populi even on his tomb designed by Bernardo Rossellino, or, instead, painting him as a sort of Talleyrand figure adaptable to various political climates, have dominated most recent discussions, and especially the American discussions, of this important early humanist.
To Marsuppini is attributed, however, the funeral inscription on Bruni on the Bernardo Rossellino monument in Santa Croce.
Indeed, this claim of Hollingsworth will raise an eyebrow or two, as she suggests that Lorenzo de' Medici, Giovanni Rucellai, and Pius II had more to do with the designs of their palaces than did Giuliano da Sangallo, Leonbattista Alberti, and Bernardo Rossellino.
She sheds light on the close connection with Florence in this period, especially in terms of the cultural mediation of Giovanni de' Medici; indeed, Filarete's rivals were not only Lombards, with Giovanni, for example, sponsoring Bernardo Rossellino, fresh from his achievements as papal architect.
