Italian sculptor and architect. After Wiligelmo and Nicholaus,
Antelami was the last of the great northern Italian sculptors working in
the cities of the central Po Valley in the 12th century. Although he is
referred to in the inscriptions as a sculptor, it is probable that he
was also an architect, and that he belonged originally, as his name
implies, to the guild of civic builders known as the ‘Magistri Antelami’,
active in the region of Como. He worked mainly in Parma and its
surroundings, although his influence was widespread.
