  Francesco Salviati
Salviati's works, such as his decorations for the Palazzo Farnese in Rome, were characteristic of the mannerist style in their extreme complexity, display of chiaroscuro technique, elongated figures and spatial and pictorial ambivalence.
In 1538 Salviati was engaged to join his recently arrived compatriot, Jacopino, in beginning a fresco decoration of the Oratory of S. Giovanni Decollato, a Florentine establishment in Rome of which the purpose was the charity of consoling prisoners condemned to execution.
Salviati's initial contribution, the Visitation (dated 1538), is visibly not yet entirely mature, but the high creative intelligence it shows and the symptoms in it of a new phase of Maniera mark a clear stage in the accomplishment in Rome of high Maniera style.

 Salviate and the Sala d'Udienze Florence by Raichel Le Goff
Salviati was born Francesco Rossi in Florence in 1510.
Salviati makes the statue of Juno a focus of his narrative in the Triumph of Camillus and has emphasised this fable of the statue being life-like and able to speak by representing her as an animated figure who seems to turn toward Camillus from their lofty positions above the crowds.
Salviati's narrative scenes accumulate the most learned and elaborate battery of archaeological reminiscence, as if for the edification of the Florentines who had not the advantage of a Roman education, and they are framed by allegories, no less learned, of almost hieroglyphic abstruseness.

Amikor a társaság a tiszteletre méltó Sagredo palotájában együtt volt, Salviati a szokásos üdvözlések kicserélése után a következõképpen kezdte mondanivalóját:
Salviati rámutat arra, hogy csodálatos legfeljebb az emberi értelem, mely a számok lényegét fel tudja fogni (Platón), mindehhez viszont semmi köze a pythagoreusok naiv számmisztikájának.
Tedd meg nekem azt a szívességet, Salviati, hogy nagyobb tisztelettel beszélj Arisztotelészrõl.

Francesco Salviati, a leading Mannerist painter of the mid-16th century, was born in 1510 in Florence and began his artistic career as an apprentice in the atelier of the master Andrea del Sarto.
Salviati became one of Rome's leading second-generation Mannerists with his fluidly elegant style, characterized by sinuous outlines, spontaneous brushwork, and rich ornamental detail.

Therefore, Antonio Salviati should be credited with the revival of the glass industry in Venice at a time when most workshops were about to close their doors.
The exhibition "Salviati meets London", organised in October 2000 in partnership with the Vessel Gallery in London was an expression of this new impetus.
Salviati objects play primarily on contrast, whether in colours, in types of glass (transparent and opaque) or in finishes (gloss or matt).

Salviati argues that there are no experiments on the earth which would preclude the daily rotation of the earth.
Salviati attempts to show that the tides are caused by a combination of the earth's orbital motion and daily rotation.
Salviati claims that the difference in speeds of the waters at points a and b constitute an acceleration, and hence the tidal flow to and fro is a consequence of the earth's motion.

 Biography
He was one of the leading fresco decorators of his day, specializing in learned and elaborate multi-figure compositions, typically Mannerist in their artificiality and abstruseness, and similar in style to those of his friend Vasari (although Salviati was an artist of higher caliber).
His finest works are perhaps the frescoes on the story of the ancient tyrant Furius Camillus (1543-45) in the Sala dell' Udienza of the Palazzo Vecchio, Florence, intended as an allegory of Cosimo de' Medici's reign.
Salviati also made designs for tapestries and was noted for his portraits, which were Florentine in their direct characterization but north Italian in their richness in colour.

 Apollo: Francesco Salviati's ceiling painting for Palazzo Grimani rediscovered
The attitude adopted by this figure echoes earlier contrapposto poses in works by Salviati, ranging from his most recent previous undertaking, the Visitation in the Oratorio di S Giovanni Decollato, Rome, by way of the Uffizi Adoration of the Shepherds, to the Incredulity of St Thomas in the Louvre.
The ceiling octagon was the central element in an elaborate scheme, and was surrounded by flaming elements consisting of garlands and landscapes by Camillo Mantovano, together with a combination of painting and stucco by Giovanni da Udine.
Both the formal language of the work and its subject-matter were inspired by antiquity, and motivated by the Grimani family's desire to harmonise the decoration with the collection of antique sculpture housed in their palace.

Finché visse il papa i rancori fra il cardinale Ippolito e il duca Alessandro per la gestione del potere a Firenze rimasero sotterranei (anche se mal celati) ma alla sua morte scoppiarono in aperta ribellione, soprattutto quando i cardinali fiorentini Salviati, Ridolfi, Gaddi e gli Strozzi si schierarono dalla parte del cardinale.
Sembra che il suo compito consistesse nel propinare del veleno al cardinale Salviati, che nutriva, fra l'altro, vecchi rancori contro il duca.
