Biography Antonio Raggi
Antonio Raggi originally came from Lombardy and trained in Rome from 1645 in the workshops of Alessandro Algardi and Gianlorenzo Bernini.
Arguably the most important moment in his career was working under Bernini's supervision on the sculptural programme for St Peter's Basilica. He went on to produce numerous works for Bernini, including the personification of the Danube for the Four Rivers Fountain in Piazza Navona, and the Angel Carrying the Column on the Ponte Sant'Angelo.
Raggi's influence was such that he even secured a major sculptural commission in England, completing the tomb of Lady Jane Cheyne for Chelsea Old Church in London in 1671.
