(c. 1654–1717).

A cousin of Enrico Zuccalli, he designed two centrally planned Baroque Salzburg churches: the Erhardskirche (St Erhard's Church—1685–9), on a Greek-cross plan (derived from Cortona's Church of Santi Luca e Martina in Rome) with a circular drum carrying the cupola; and the more interesting Theatine Kajetanerkirche (St Kajetan's Church—1685–1711), with its elliptical cupola derived from Bernini's Church of Sant'Andrea al Quirinale, Rome. These two buildings may have influenced the design of Fischer von Erlach's Dreifaltigkeitskirche (Church of the Holy Trinity), Salzburg (1694–1702), and his later Karlskirche (Charles Church), Vienna (from 1716). The Schloss (Castle) at Aurolzmünster (1691–1711), near Ried-im-Innkreis, Austria, is also probably by him.
