Italian sculptor Giovanni Battista Maini died on this day in 1752 in Rome at age 62. Born in the Lombard town of Cassano Magnano, Maini arrived in Rome around 1708, making a name for himself and even earning a caricature from Pier Leone Ghezzi in 1749. Maini made a number of sculptures for major Roman churches, including S. Agnese in Agone, New St. Peter’s, S. Maria Maggiore, and S. Giovanni in Laterano. He also designed the Oceanus group for the Trevi Fountain, making the drawings and full-scale stucco models, which were realized in marble by Pietro Bracci (d. 1773).
