(fl c. 1536–50; d Hainaut, Belgium, 1553). Italian sculptor, also active in France and the southern Netherlands. Vasari mentioned in passing a Luca Lancia of Naples who was a disciple of Jacopo Sansovino (1486–1570): he could be the son of Bernardo di Luca Lancia, a Carrarese sculptor active in Naples around the beginning of the 16th century. A Luca is also documented as having worked for Sansovino on the first marble tribune and its bronze reliefs for S Marco, Venice, in 1536–7; he also helped Tommaso Lombardo to block out for Sansovino the marble Virgin and Child with Angels (Venice, Doge's Pal.)
