It happened on AUGUST 3

In 1667, Francesco Borromini died in Rome. An architect and sculptor, he was born in 1599 in Lugano (Switzerland) and was one of the principal figures in the rise of Roman Baroque architecture. Among his works is the baroque church of Sant'Ivo alla Sapienza, which has a unique, slender cupola and which was built from 1640 to 1650. It is located in Corso Rinascimento in Rome, and its courtyard housed the first seat of Rome’s La Sapienza University.
