ALBERTI: Sant'Andrea, Mantua. Demonstration of proportions used by Alberti. Located on a fairly difficult site, the exterior of the church would have to address a piazza without being able to front it fully. The facade accomplished its task by virtue of Alberti's boldness in combining typologies from the ancient world into a new synthesis. To give the facade monumentality, he imposed on it a triumphal arch, not unlike the Arch of Titus in Rome
