Donato Felice d' Allio


Quick Reference


Descended from a family of Italians who settled in Austria, he was the architect of the convent and church (1717–28), of the Salesian nuns in Vienna, an assured Baroque ensemble with a two-storey church-façade of the scroll type and a plan consisting of an ellipse on the long axis. His greatest, but unfinished, work is the Abbey of Klosterneuburg (begun 1730), modified by Fischer von Erlach.
