Sta. Maria della Consolazione, Todi

This pilgrimage church has been attributed to Bramante, although there is no hard evidence other than stylistic details.
-an elevated platform ( a key Bramantean theory that holy places in which the supreme being is invoked shall be raised up and centralized)
-designed using simple geometric forms, clarity heightened by sparse interior decor and pietra serena
Created in the years 1504-1517, Sta. Maria della Consolazione
-mixes Roman and Tuscan ideas
-shows influence of Sangallo and Brunelleschi
This church is a simplified version of Bramante's original design for St. Peters and involved Cola da Caprarola, a wood worker. Caprarola may have had more involvement than we know, there is still some question as to who actually designed this building.
