Who was Alessandro Pasqualini?

Alessandro Pasqualini was an Italian Renaissance architect, born in Bologna, who helped bring Renaissance architecture to the Low Countries.

He was hired by Floris van Egmond, the count of Buren and lord of IJsselstein and Grave, and worked in the Netherlands for 18 years. His most important works from this period are the tower of the church of IJsselstein and the castle of Buren. Other works include an octagonal storey of the church tower of Buren, the facade of the south transept of the church of Grave and fortifications in Leerdam and Kampen.

In 1549, after the death of Maximiliaan van Egmond, Floris' son, Pasqualini was hired by Wilhelm V, duke of Jülich, Kleve and Berg. He directed the reconstruction of the German city of Jülich after the fire in 1547 and designed a palace, a town hall and a citadel in the same town. He died in Bielefeld in 1559.
