  Sicilian Baroque - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The town's aristocratic patrons would often call on Florence or Rome to provide them with an architect; one example was the Florentine Giovanni Angelo Montorsoli, who established the Tuscan styles of architecture and sculpture there in the mid-16th century.
Giovanni Battista Vaccarini was the leading Sicilian architect during this period.
He arrived on the island in 1730 bringing with him a fusion of the concepts of Bernini and Borromini, and introduced to the island's architecture a unified movement and a play of curves, which would have been unacceptable in Rome itself.

 SICILY, Sicilian Art and Architecture - BuySicilian - The Sixteenth Century
His understanding of Michelangelo's late style is visible in the remarkable church of S. Giovanni di Malta, Messina, on which he began work with Camilliani from about 1590:the use of giant pilasters and deep triangular guttae had repercussions in Sicilian architecture until the 18C.
Of these, a pupil of Michelangelo, the Florentine Giovanni Angelo Montorsoli (1507?-63), who came to Messina in 1547, was the most important.
Montorsoli's Orion fountain (begun 1547), with its Michelangelesque forms, was particularly influential both in Sicily and mainland Italy, and his Neptune fountain (begun 1557) was hardly less so.

And there is no question but that the statues of the Medici patron saints, Cosmas and Damian, (carved by two of Michelangelo's followers, Giovanni Angelo Montorsoli and Raffaello da Montelupo, after designs by the master), reinforce this sense of focus by their interaction with the Madonna and Child.
Giovanni de' Medici, the original patron of the chapel, had been crowned as Pope Leo X on Easter Sunday; the feast of Christ's Resurrection, and the dedication therefore recalls this special event in his life and in the history of his family.

He then went to Florence to work on the New Sacristy (Medici Chapel) and the Biblioteca Laurenziana at S Lorenzo, probably from 1524; the influence of Michelangelo was to prove decisive.
Work at S Lorenzo was suspended as a result of the expulsion of the Medici in 1527, and Montorsoli decided to enter a religious order; he was inducted into the Servite Order at SS Annunziata in 1530, taking his vows in 1531.
In Rome Montorsoli also produced a marble portrait of Clement VII (untraced) and assisted Michelangelo on the tomb of Julius II.

 Andrea Boscoli Biography
It was probably in Rome that Andrea Boscoli became acquainted with the profane interiors of Jacopo Zucchi, met Zuccari and came into contact with artists from countries north of the Alps.
At that time Boscoli executed frescoes for the Chapel della Cella of Giovanni Angelo Montorsoli at the Servite (Servants of Blessed Mary) convent, where a clear vibrant palette and simplicity in the narration of religious scenes reveal the influence of Santi di Tito, Zuccari and Federico Barrocci.
Boscoli's talent for profane scenes is shown in the mythological frescoes of the Villa della Seta in Corliano, Pisa (ca 1592) and in this he differs from his Florentine contemporaries.

during the 1530s Giovanni Angelo Montorsoli replaced the arm in terracotta, although its position is not certain.
The line by which Nature divides completeness from superfluity is but a small one, and, insensible as it often is, has been crossed even by the best moderns; while these, in shunning a meager Contour, became corpulent, those, in shunning that, grew lean.
Among them all, only Michael Angelo, perhaps, may be said to have attained the antique; but only in strong muscular figures, heroic frames; not in those of tender youth; nor in female bodies, which, under his bold hand, grew Amazons.
