VERMUNDO RESTA

He was born around 1555 in the Italian city of Milan, in the province of Umbria. His parents were Alejandro Resta and Isabel Milach. He moved to Seville in 1585 with Cardinal Rodrigo de Castro.

As first documented works, he adds that unfortunately disappeared, you were hospitalized from Espírito Santo and Do Amor de Deus for those who were traced between 1587 and 1588, both of which were completed in 1602. They were expressly in charge of Cardinal Rodrigo de Castro, who was in charge of Hispanic archdiocese from 1582 to 1600.

He was appointed senior teacher of the Archbishopric of Seville in 1588. Between 1601 and 1603 he carried out some minor works and some commissions for the Alcazar and in 1603 he was appointed senior master of it.1 The role of this Milanese may have been to project only the facade of the church, since its composition, orders and decorative motifs of Italian progeny are clearly unmarked from the rest of the factory that follows the classical Mannerist conception. Its design does not correspond to the line that Ruiz, Tolosa or Monasterio followed. On the other hand, the acroteras and auction pyramids are surely designs added afterwards by the teachers who worked in the factory. The fact that he did not arrive in Monforte until the summer helps him as tracer of the facade of the church. of 1593, therefore exempt from controlling the collection of materials and the realization of the foundations, and thereafter remained 15 months, sufficient time to at least raise all the details of the facade, which is not known when it was finished , but it is known that it was before 1598, since at that time the facade of the College was finished off as it is exposed in the appraisal of Juan de Tolosa.
