Sculptor, architect, bronze-caster and garden designer, member of an Italian family of artists. Of Sicilian origin, they were active in central Italy, mainly in Rome, in the second half of the 16th century.
Jacopo (Giacomo) del Duca trained in Sicily with Antonello Gaggini
and then in Rome with Michelangelo,
whom he met through his uncle, Antonio del Duca, Capellano of S Maria di Loreto. He became one of Michelangelos principal assistants and continued to work for him until Michelangelos death in 1564. He also worked independently before that date; his marble relief for the abbey of S Bartolomeo di Campagna (now Trisulti; in situ) was begun before 1561.
